2018 FIFA World Cup Best Goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, has officially signed a six-year deal with Spanish giants Real Madrid on Thursday.
The transfer ended the seven-year spell of the 26-year old at English Premier League club Chelsea.
“Today I am realising a dream,” said Courtois.
“Arriving at the best club in the world is a responsibility and an honour.
“Today I fulfil a dream. You cannot imagine how happy I am and how much I have worked to get here. Since childhood, I dreamt of this moment.
“I have been a rival and I know what it is to face Real Madrid. Today I’m one of you. Hala Madrid.”
Champions League holders Real have not revealed how much they have paid for the Belgium goalkeeper, who had a year remaining on his contract at Chelsea.
But Chelsea have signed Athletic Bilbao keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga for £71m as a replacement.
