Real Madrid would like to invest £17.5 million for a Chelsea player

Pulisic Chelsea Real Madrid

Real Madrid is experiencing an injury-filled campaign once more. Los Blancos have lost several important players to protracted injuries. But they have so far managed to function without them.

Thibaut Courtois, who suffered an ACL tear just days before the season began. The Belgian has arguably been the biggest casualty of the season.

As per The Sun, To fill in for the Belgian, Real Madrid moved quickly and wisely to sign Chelsea custodian Kepa Arrizabalaga on a season-long loan.

Real Madrid will pay £17.5 million for Kepa

Real Madrid is prepared to negotiate with Chelsea for a long-term contract for Kepa.

However, they refuse to part with the Spanish keeper for a transfer fee that is greater than £17.5 million.

Even Kepa is also a good fit in the Real Madrid starting lineup. And Real Madrid could look to bring in Kepa on a permanent deal.

The contract for Andriy Lunin is coming to an end this year. The 24-year-old might need to leave Santiago Bernabeu and get playing time in order to advance his career.

Hence, Real Madrid will have a need of substitute goalie before courtois’s back. And based on Chelsea loanee’s performance, Los Blancos are considering kepa.

Kepa’s permanent signing shouldn’t prove to be a challenging transaction. Next summer, the Spaniard’s contract with Chelsea will expire after one year.

Naturally, Chelsea would suffer a significant loss if the Spaniard, who they signed for approximately £71.6 million from Athletic Bilbao, were to leave for a £17.5 million transfer fee. Let’s observe how things happen.
