Real Madrid to sign €43 million superstar in January
Zinedine Zidane wants to make a team that can fight for the title for the next 6-7 years at Real Madrid. He’s been building a team that is young and talented and is keen on adding more players like that to the squad.
One such player who’s highly rated in Spain in Kepa Arrizabalaga. The Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper is reportedly set to join Los Blancos in the January transfer window as per reports in Marca.
The Spanish outlet claim that the fee has been agreed for the 23-year-old and that he will be moving to Bernabeu when the transfer window opens.
This has put the future of Kiko Casilla and Keylor Navas at Real Madrid in doubt. One of the two shot-stoppers will have to make way for the new signing and reports suggest that it is likely to be Casilla.
The 31-year-old has been linked with a move to Newcastle United in recent times and is likely to move there when the window opens. Rafa Benitez is not happy with just Rob Elliot in the squad and is keen on signing another experienced goalkeeper.
