According to Relevo, Spanish giants Real Madrid will send Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga back to Chelsea in the summer.

The 29 year old joined Real Madrid in the summer on loan and was hoping to make his stay at Real Madrid permanent.

The Real Madrid coaching staff and board are reportedly happy with the form of Ukrainian goalkeeper Lunin.

Kepa started the season as Real Madrid’s no.1 goalkeeper following a long-term injury to Thibaut Courtois but lost his place to Lunin following an injury and drop in form.

Kepa’s future is now complicated as he isn’t wanted at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea signing Robert Sanchez and Petrovic following his exit last summer.
