Kepa: I was talking to Tuchel - then Real Madrid called

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has shared that he had the chance to join Bayern Munich before opting for Real Madrid.

Kepa mentioned that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel contacted him, and initially, he was considering a move to Bayern Munich.

However, the opportunity to play for Real Madrid emerged due to circumstances, including the injury of his colleague Thibaut Courtois, leading him to join the Spanish club on a season-long loan.

He revealed:

“Thomas Tuchel called me. I was going to go to Munich. Then, due to circumstances such as the injury of a colleague (Thibaut Courtois), the opportunity to play for Real arose.

“An opportunity that the player wanted to seize immediately despite the approach of the German champions.

“In the end, Real Madrid is Real Madrid. When Real Madrid calls you you don’t think about it.”
