Real Madrid have confirmed the signing of Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper joined Real for a reported fee of 35 million euros ($40.6 million) on a six-year deal, with midfielder Mateo Kovacic departing Madrid for Stamford Bridge on a season-long loan.

Courtois was unveiled on Thursday afternoon after completing a medical with Galacticos.

Courtois told Real Madrid’s official website: “I wanted to be closer to my family. I want to say thank you to everybody who has made this possible, particularly the mother of my children.

“Although we are no longer together you remain a very special person for me. Today I am just another Madridista. I am one of you. Hala Madrid!”.

Courtois added: “Arriving at the best club in the world is not an easy thing. I have worked very hard to get here. I have always dreamed of this moment since I was a kid.”
