Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga will be returning to Chelsea from Real Madrid in the summer, although his future beyond that point ‘is a mystery’.

That’s according to Mundo Deportivo, who report that the Spaniard was ‘convinced’ he would be signing for Real Madrid permanently before his situation ‘changed radically’.

The newspaper explains that Kepa arrived at the Spanish club wanting to compete with Thibaut Courtois to be their long-term number one and was making great strides on that front with the Belgian out injured.

He was ‘convinced’ that Real Madrid were going to pay Chelsea €20m to make his loan deal a permanent one in the summer but ‘everything changed’ when he was injured in the warm up against Sporting de Braga.

From there, everything went wrong for Kepa, with Andriy Lunin coming in to replace him and taking advantage of Carlo Ancelotti’s faith.

That means Kepa’s situation has ‘changed radically’ at Real Madrid, with the Spanish giants now not interested in signing him permanently from Chelsea.

He’ll instead have to return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season but reports in England have indicated Chelsea don’t want him either and will instead put the goalkeeper on the market.

Thus, as things stand, Kepa’s future ‘is a mystery’ with a transfer seemingly on the cards for him but the destination unknown.
