Chelsea Sets €25 Million Price Tag for Player Eager to Make Move to Real Madrid”

Real Madrid has recently been in the spotlight for their interest in several Chelsea players. One name that stands out is Reece James, who is reportedly high on their list of desired right-back signings for the future. Additionally, rumors have hinted at Ian Maatsen being considered as an alternative to Alphonso Davies.

However, this summer, Real Madrid made an unexpected acquisition from Chelsea in the form of Kepa Arrizabalaga. The move was not initially part of the club’s plans, but when Thibaut Courtois sustained a potentially season-ending ACL injury, the need for another goalkeeper became urgent.

Kepa arrived at Real Madrid on a season-long loan from Chelsea and has assumed the role of the starting goalkeeper. The Spaniard has not concealed his desire to continue his stay at Real Madrid beyond the current season.

Given Courtois’s expected return to the number one spot once he is fit again, it raises questions about Kepa’s future at the club. Chelsea appears open to the possibility of his permanent departure.

Reportedly, Chelsea is willing to consider a permanent transfer for Kepa in the range of €20 million to €25 million, as per Defensa Central (via The Hard Tackle). Kepa himself is enthusiastic about the prospect of joining Real Madrid on a permanent basis next summer.

The decision now rests with Real Madrid, as it remains to be seen whether they are willing to invest in a player who is likely to serve as a backup once Courtois returns. Furthermore, at 28 years of age, Kepa is no longer considered a young prospect with potential.

Considering these factors, the likelihood of Kepa’s presence at the Santiago Bernabeu beyond this season appears uncertain. His future will be influenced by his performance during the loan spell and Real Madrid’s assessment of their goalkeeping options.
