Thibaut Courtois wants Eden Hazard reunion at Real Madrid

Thibaut Courtois wants Eden Hazard reunion at Real Madrid

As expected, the world has been reacting to the news of Thibaut Courtois' move from Chelsea to Real Madrid.

But he insisted he won't be fazed by the attention of being the world's most expensive stopper or a change of culture in moving to the Premier League. "If he ends up here one day, that would be brilliant". I just want to be myself, the same as I've always been, and try to give my best for the club.

Chelsea FC and Real Madrid announced Wednesday on their respective websites they've agreed to transfer the star goalkeeper from the Premier League club to the Spanish giant.

Chelsea appear to have learnt from their mistakes, with Kepa signing a seven-year contract.

The 40-year-old Italian, who this summer left Juventus to join Paris St-Germain, was purchased for 53m euros by Juve from Parma on 3 July 2001.

"I received better paid offers but I wanted to be in the best club in the world and be close to my children".

Madrid's starting goalkeeper has been Keylor Navas, who helped the club win the last three Champions League titles. "I had a great time there, but now this is my club and my home".

Photo ID is required when purchasing alcohol or cigarettes, and occasionally when verifying purchases made with a credit card. Trump campaigned on a promise of building a wall to deter illegal immigration and to make Mexico pay for it.

Asked what he can offer Madrid that Navas cannot, Courtois said it is hard to say.

"I am really happy and excited to be here at Chelsea".

"I just hope I can adjust and adapt as soon as possible but we're all different".

Colombia centre-back Mina would be signing on a permanent deal for a fee of around £27m while Portugal global Gomes would move on a season-long loan for a fee of around £2m.

New Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has urged Eden Hazard to stay.

And the 23-year-old revealed that his fellow Spaniards provided him with some rave reviews of life at Chelsea, convincing him to make the move. "I've got two kids here and that had a significant role to play in my decision". Only two keepers made more saves in the Liga last term, and he's pretty good with his feet too - once deployed outfield during an injury crisis for his U14 team, he scored twice.
