REAL MADRID TO SIGN THIBAUT COURTOIS FOR THIRTY FIVE MILLION POUNDS.
It now looks more and more likely that the Spanish giants Real Madrid are going to sign up the Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea. The amount is said to be 35, thirty five million pounds. Now Chelsea have gone and paid a record fee for a goalkeeper, it was for Kepa Arrzabalaga from the Spanish Basque region club called Atletico Bilbao. The Spanish goalkeeper was costing a very huge sum of 72, seventy two million pounds, and he now becomes the costliest goalkeeper in football history, as he broke the previous record held by the Brazilian goalkeeper Allison Becker, who was sold to Liverpool from the Italian club A. S. Roma, for a then record of 69, sixty nine million pounds. The sad thing here is goalkeepers are becoming far to costly , and have inflated prices as well, in fact these goalkeepers are costing a fortune, and are now put in the bracket of striker . The Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku was costing Manchester United 75, seventy five million pounds.
