  • Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa, who is close to joining Chelsea for £71.5m, almost signed for Real Madrid in January for just £17.9m. The 23-year-old Spaniard will become the world's most expensive keeper when he moves to Stamford Bridge.

  • Kepa is travelling to London to finalise a move to Chelsea which will see an increase in his current 4m euros-a-year net wages (£3.58m).

  • Kepa will replace Belgium's Thibaut Courtois, who is confident his refusal to return to Chelsea to train will be rewarded with a move to Real Madrid. The Spanish side are prepared to allow Croatia midfielder Mateo Kovacic, 24, to move to Stamford Bridge on loan as part of the deal.
