Real Madrid reacted quickly to a serious injury to goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. To compensate for his absence of several months, the Merengue club would have opted to sign Chelsea’s Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, according to Sky Sports Germany. Bayern were also trying to sign him, as Manuel Neuer is not expected to play again until 2024, but Kepa is said to have preferred the White House. There will be a possibility of getting loan.
Carlo Ancelotti assures Andrey Lunin will start
In a press conference on Friday, the day before the start of La Liga for Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti guaranteed that Andrey Lunin would start, even if a new goalkeeper was recruited: “I have complete confidence in Lunin. If another parent comes in, Lunin will be the starter.
If the Real Madrid coach keeps his promises, Kepa’s recruitment will be keen. Will the Spanish goalkeeper agree to become the lining up? For two seasons, between 2020 and 2022, Kepa was the second choice behind Edouard Mendy.
After five seasons at Chelsea, and winning the Champions League and Europa League with the London club, Kepa could leave England to join his native country.
