Arrizabalaga Set to Join Real Madrid in January
Although two of the top performing goalkeepers in the English Premier League have been mentioned as possible buys for Real Madrid, it looks as if a new goalkeeper will be brought to the club from closer to home.
Instead of signing either of David de Gea (Manchester United) or Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea), according to the Spanish news source, AS, it is Kepa Arrizabalaga who the club will be signing.
Our referenced source is reporting that Real Madrid are preparing to pay Atletico Bilbao the €20 million release clause the goalkeeper currently has in his contract.
More importantly, it is being reported that Real Madrid are set to act fast and do the deal once the January transfer window opens.
If so this should see the end in sight for the long running goalkeeping saga.
