Kepa reveals 'so many things attracted' him to Chelsea

It has been said that on top of Kovačić's release on loan, Real Madrid will pay Chelsea €35 million for Courtois.

Courtois 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 Chelsea on Thursday.

It is being reported that a deal has been agreed with Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga for a fee in the region of £71 million, which would become the record amount spent on a goalkeeper.

That's definitely a nice improvement from last year's Pixel 2 devices, where you'd get a USB-C/3.5mm adapter for the earphones. From the looks of things, Google will continue to include the audio adapter with the new Pixel 3 devices.

The 23-year-old signed a seven-year contract at Stamford Bridge, shortly after Chelsea confirmed a deal had been reached to grant Thibaut Courtois his desired move to Real Madrid.

A statement on Athletic's website read: "Kepa Arrizabalaga has met the requirements for the valid unilateral termination of the work contract that linked him to Athletic Club".

The deal for Kepa outstrips the £66.8m paid by Liverpool for Alisson last month.

Two dead and dozens hurt in Italy truck explosion
Police said the accident and subsequent fire and explosion injured between 60 and 70 people, some with severe burns. Italian media reported that numerous injured were hit by debris and shattered glass after the explosion.

Chelsea are now expected to announce Kepa Arrizabalaga as Courtois's replacement.

Courtois played a total of 154 appearances for Chelsea, winning the Premier League on two occasions.

Since joining, Navas has won three Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup trophies, two UEFA Super Cups, a LaLiga and Supercopa de Espana title. Mario Stanić was the first, followed by goalkeeper Matej Delač, striker Stipe Perica, and offensive midfielder Marijo Pašalić, though they have all been sent out on loan from The Blues. The 26-year-old, named the best goalkeeper at the World Cup as Belgium finished third, has one year remaining on his contract and reportedly wishes to join Real Madrid.

Paul invites Russian lawmakers to Washington
At the beginning of July, a group of USA senators met with Russian officials ahead of the Helsinki summit between Trump and Putin. Congress ahead of midterm elections, and such visits can potentially influence negotiations over U.S. sanctions between U.S.

And thus, Kepa's move to Chelsea was triggered by Courtois leaving for Real Madrid, the very club that very almost prised the Spain global from Athletic in the first place.
