I will fit in with Sarri's style at Chelsea - Kepa

Thibaut Courtois Thibaut Courtois is trying to engineer an exit from Chelsea

"The four players trained with nine players from the under-18s", Real Madrid said on their web site. But considering they've got half the fee from the sale Courtois and Kovacic for a year, it's not the worst deal.

I saw it in 2011 in a report of the local TV TVL, who interviewed him while he was packing to go to Madrid. You can not imagine how happy I am and how much I have worked to get here.

Real Madrid also released a short statement of their own, which confirms that Kovacic will stay at Chelsea until June 30, 2019.

He had been set to join Real Madrid in January for a fee of just £17.5m - even passing a medical at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 26-year-old only had a year left on his deal and has been absent from training this week as he looked to push through a move before the transfer window ended for the Blues on Thursday.

Courtois said at his official unveiling: "Arriving at the best club in the world is a responsibility and an honour".

Having spent three seasons at Real's city rivals Atletico Madrid, on loan from Chelsea, Courtois expressed a desire to return to the Spanish capital from London.

Speaking about his move to Stamford Bridge, Kovacic expressed his excitement about the chance to play in the Premier League.

Chelsea have made Kepa their number one target to replace Thibaut Courtois.

Kepa Arrizabalaga has published a goodbye letter after leaving Athletic Bilbao for Chelsea, in a world record 80 million euro move - he is the most expensive goalkeeper in the history of football.
