Real Madrid Nears N9.5bn Bilbao's Kepa Deal

Real Madrid have moved a step closer to the capture of Kepa Arrizabalaga after a reported £20m (N9.5bn) transfer was given the green light.
El Partidazo de COPE's Twitter account claims that Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has given his backing to the arrival of the Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper, who has been on Real's radar over the past months.
The claim goes on to state that Kepa will act as backup to first-choice shot stopper Keylor Navas for the rest of this season, with the 23-year-old to be the No. 1 choice for Real's remaining Copa del Rey clashes this term.

Arrizabalaga has entered the final six months of his contract with Bilbao, but is unwilling to pen an extension after talks over renewed terms broke down in December.
