It's ironic that Arrizabalaga is heading to Chelsea to replace Real Madrid-bound Courtois, because just a few months ago he almost simplified the goalkeeper merry-go-round by moving to the Bernabeu himself.

The deal had been a long time in the making for Courtois, who was sent on loan from Chelsea to Atletico Madrid for three seasons before returning to London in 2014.

Courtois' actions are set to lead to success and, according to Spanish TV programme El Larguero, Real Madrid are to officially seal the signing of the goalkeeper later this week.

Chelsea subsequently signed Kepa Arrizabalaga in a world-record move for a goalkeeper to replace Courtois but it was far from an ideal scenario, with the Blues' Premier League opener with Huddersfield just around the corner. He also helped Belgium achieve a third-place finish at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - the rumours so far, and Samsung's cheeky leak
As per some report , it is seen that Galaxy Note 9 will get a price tag of KRW 1,094,500 or Rs 66,600 for the 128GB model. That's well and good since the Galaxy Note 9 is likely to grab all of Samsung's attention in the coming weeks.

Kovacic is one of two midfielders signed under new head coach, Maurizio Sarri, who brought Jorginho with him from Napoli.

Courtois had stayed away from Chelsea's training ground this week as he tried to force through a move.

The 23-year-old has signed a seven-year deal at Stamford Bridge and he has since been discussing his ambitions for the future. Considered Spain's goalkeeper of the future, he was a reserve at the World Cup in Russian Federation. "So what I would like is to win more titles for the club".

Before Alisson moved from Roma to Liverpool in July, Gianluigi Buffon had spent 17 years as the most expensive goalkeeper in world football. The Croatian midfielder competed with regular Madrid starters Casemiro, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.
