The goalkeeper situation has been unsettled at Chelsea  this season but this has apparently been resolved with the strings of transfers today.

Chelsea have confirmed the sale of Thibaut Courtois to Madrid, with Mateo Kovacic coming back to Stamford Bridge as a part of the deal.

Courtois has been at the west London club since 2011, and wrested the No. one jersey from club favorite Petr Cech and shone  throughout a loan spell with Atletico Madrid.

In recent months, however, the Belgian has become more and more unsettled, going thus far to skip preseason to force through a move to the Spanish capital,

Real Madrid have reached an agreement reported to be   €35m fee which will see Kovacic spend a year on loan in London. This was announced by the Blues on the clubs website.

Real Madrid also confirmed the deal, revealing that Courtois has  signed a contract that  keeps him in Madrid until 2023-24 season.

Courtois made a  total of 154 appearances for Chelsea, winning the Premier League tiltle twice.

He also won the Spanish League during his time with Atletico Madrid during the 2013/2014 season and would challenge Keylor Navas for the number one spot.

Kovacic would become the fourth signing for Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri and bolster the Blues midfield this season.
