He will move to Stamford Bridge as a replacement for Belgium worldwide Thibaut Courtois, who earlier this evening sealed his long anticipated move to European Champions Real Madrid.
Courtois' intentions were concrete - Real Madrid are the only he side he wishes to play for, and to prepare for life without him Chelsea have deemed Kepa to be the only suitable replacement.
Athletic do not negotiate when it comes to selling their top stars because they limit themselves to only signing Basque players, meaning the only way Chelsea could bring Kepa to Stamford Bridge was by activating his buyout clause. The Croat was also keen to move away from Madrid after failing to get regular chances in Madrid's midfield.
