See Why Chelsea Goalkeeper Kepa Snubbed Bayern For Real Madrid
Bayern CEO, Jan-Christian Dreesen, has officially confirmed that Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has chosen to join Real Madrid. Initially, the Bundesliga champions had a strong interest in signing Kepa, especially after Yann Sommer’s departure to Inter Milan.
However, Madrid swiftly entered the picture due to a recent ACL injury to their primary goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois. This development prompted Real Madrid to secure Kepa’s services on a one-year loan agreement, effectively solidifying the Spaniard’s role as their goalkeeper.
Dreesen emphasized that a deal with Kepa was very close for Bayern, and they had plans to unveil him as their player. Nevertheless, Kepa ultimately decided to accept Real Madrid’s offer. Given his Spanish background, the opportunity to join Real Madrid was appealing to him.
With this decision, Kepa is set to embark on a new journey with Real Madrid for the upcoming season, and fans will be eager to see how he contributes to the team’s performance between the posts.
