OFFICIAL: Courtois signs for Real Madrid

La Liga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 09/08/2018

Thibaut Courtois has signed for Real Madrid from Chelsea as he brings to an end the transfer saga between both clubs.

Reports say that Courtois will don Real Madrid next season after Florentino Perez has got his wish and signed the 26-year-old.

Courtois did exceptionally well in the World Cup that earned him the Golden Gloves of the tournament.

The Belgian goalkeeper has been on the radar of the European Champions for the past seasons and the shot-stopper is not shy to reveal his desire to play for the La Liga outfit.

"Chelsea and Real Madrid have tonight agreed terms for the permanent transfer of Thibaut Courtois subject to the agreement of personal terms and passing a medical," Chelsea signalled in a statement published on the club's official website.

"Subject to the completion of the deal Mateo Kovacic will join the Blues on a season-long loan."
