Kepa Arrizabalaga expected to return to Chelsea next summer

Real Madrid unlikely to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga on a permanent deal.

The Spaniard arrived as an emergency replacement for Thibaut Courtois who suffered a serious knee injury in August.

The 29-year-old Chelsea goalkeeper joined Los Blancos on a season-long loan deal and started 13 games in a row in all competitions.

Kepa remains under contract at the London club until 2025 and has the risk of losing him for free in 2025.

The Spaniard suffered an injury of his own and manager Carlo Ancelotti deployed Andriy Lunin in his absence.

But since his return, the manager has informed that he is yet to decide who will become the first choice when the season resumes next week.

“I don’t have the idea of rotating the goalkeepers,” Ancelotti told reporters.

“They are both doing well. Lunin has progressed a lot and shown a lot of confidence. Kepa has maintained his level too. When Kepa recovered from injury, I liked rewarding both players. I will choose one of the two in the second half of the season.”

Earlier in October, Kepa reinstated his desire to secure a permanent move to Santiago Bernabeu next summer.
