Courtois will sign a six-year contract with Los Blancos subject to agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

"Subsequently, Courtois will step on the turf of the Santiago Bernabeu for the first time wearing the Real Madrid CF shirt and will attend the media in the press room".

Meanwhile, Kepa will replace the Belgium global in a deal that will see him become the world's most expensive goalkeeper, surpassing the £65m paid by Liverpool to Roma for Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker last month.

Democrats have long opposed financing Trump's wall but lack the votes by themselves to block House approval of that amount. Trump has also demanded that the US shift to an immigration system that's based more on merit and less on family ties.

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.

Kepa's arrival usurps Liverpool stopper Alisson as the world's most expensive goalkeeper ever with Chelsea handing over £71.6m to sign him up.

"As soon as possible" afterwards it is said that the 23-year-old will be on a plane to London, with Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri looking to start him in the opening Premier League game of the season against Huddersfield on Saturday. He helped the Blues win two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one League Cup during his time at Stamford Bridge.

"The aforementioned certification states that the player has expressed his willingness to unilaterally close and terminate the relationship between them since the 2004/05 season and that the amount of compensation established in the contract has been deposited".

He becomes the third acquisition of a chaotic summer transfer window for Chelsea, following the £50m capture of Jorginho from Napoli and the signing of third-choice goalkeeper Robert Green on a free transfer.
