Kepa Arrizabalaga, one step away from signing his signing with Chelsea
The goalkeeper stops belonging to Athletic and is already the most expensive in the history of football. Only the presentation with the English club remains.
The payment of the termination clause of Kepa Arrizabalaga goalkeeper by Chelsea worth 80 million euros to Athletic Bilbao has been effective.
The payment was made through the player's lawyers and Margarita Garay, general director of Bahía Internacional, accompanied by lawyers Rodrigo García and Álvaro Reig de Laffer.
Kepa would be the most expensive goalkeeper in the world
Also present were De Ruiz-Huerta and Crespo lawyers, with an office in Valencia, while Enric Ripoll and Paolo Torchetti, represented Chelsea.
After the payment of the clause of 80 million euros by Chelsea, it is expected that Kepa travel to London this afternoon to join his new club and put on Thursday under the new coach Maurizio Sarri.
The signing has been completed shortly before the close of the market in England, on Thursday 8 at 6:00 p.m., and may cause the arrival of Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid to reinforce the goal.
In addition this would have a direct effect on the Leganés since the goalkeeper Iago Herrerín would not leave yielded to the club pepinero, because the Athletic does not have predicted to sign a substitute of Kepa.
These moves may also affect Kiko Casilla, goalkeeper of Real Madrid, who could request his departure from the club and case of reaching an agreement with the Lega, fulfill his desire to remain in the capital of Spain.
