"I am very happy to continue in what I consider my home", Kepa stated at the time.

In January, Kepa signed a new long-term contract with Athletic until 2025, amid interest from Real Madrid. "I had a great time there, but now this is my club and my home".

Kepa Arrizabalaga's world-record move to Chelsea made him the latest player to rake in a huge transfer bounty for Athletic Bilbao.

The Blues faced a race against time as to sign the young worldwide before the Premier League transfer window closes on Thursday at 18:00 CEST - tasked with convincing the shot-stopper to move to England, despite Kepa having just renewed his contract.

Upon arriving at Stamford Bridge, Kovacic said: 'I am really happy and excited to be here at Chelsea.

"They are all very happy, very comfortable at the club and they all encouraged me to make the move and have an worldwide experience, and it's something I felt like doing".

Kovacic's move comes as part of a midfield overhaul for Chelsea, with Jorginho following Sarri from Napoli earlier this summer.

"I hope I'll be able to adjust and adapt as soon as possible". On the other hand, Maurizio's style is not unlike the style used by the Spanish national team, where I have played for many years.

"I'd like to think so". However, another signing showing some great business to get an ex-Real Madrid in. "It is down to many things".

The LaLiga club's unique policy of only signing players hailing from the Basque region informs a policy of inserting substantial release clauses into the contracts of their prized assets. "I'm a top goalkeeper, as are Keylor and Kiko [Casilla] and, from what I've seen of him, [Luca] Zidane".

And although eyebrows have been raised by the huge fee for a player with just two seasons of top-flight experience, the consensus in Spain regards Kepa as the country's best young goalkeeper with a very bright future. "It is a good way to acknowledge the importance of a good goalkeeper".
