He's going nowhere today but could still be sold to Real Madrid this summer with the Spanish transfer window open until August 31.

"But I want to let everyone know I have made the decision calmly and in a responsible way".

"I have references on him from players like Pepe Reina and others. The four players trained with nine players from the under-18s", Real Madrid said on their web site.

Arzani featured at the World Cup for Australia and in confirming the deal City confirmed they would be looking to loan him out to allow him to gain further experience. "I knew some of the players in the current team because I had played with them in the Spanish national team, even in the World Cup", he said.

The deal had been a long time in the making for Courtois, who was sent on loan from Chelsea to Atletico Madrid for three seasons before returning to London in 2014. He's only 23-years-old, thus could fill the void between the posts at Stamford Bridge for the coming decade.

"When I [first] saw him play, I was just so struck by the fact that a keeper who was then only 18 could perform like that under such pressure".

"There is no rush". "It is down to many things".

"I was very happy to be part of one of the biggest teams in the world". I just arrived a few months ago and am just starting to settle well. Not necessarily. Especially when you consider Chelsea's Premier League rivals Liverpool beating the Blues to a perhaps more tested Allison.

"I was very young".

"I received a lot of offers, some better from a financial point of view, but I wanted to come here, and importantly, be close to my children". We need to work physically to be ready as soon as possible, but it's nice to be back. I'm quite humble, N'Golo is even more humble than me.

"Tell everyone loud and clear, I have as much enthusiasm for leaving Madrid as I do for dying", Navas said after Madrid's victory over Roma in a friendly in New Jersey on Tuesday, the night before Madrid completed their move for Courtois.
