"The four players trained with nine players from the under-18s", Real Madrid said on their web site.

'I am excited to play with him (Jorginho) and I think we will enjoy ourselves together on the pitch. You can not imagine how happy I am and how much I have worked to get here.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas emphatically ruled out leaving as he said the signing of Thibaut Courtois has not affected his desire to remain at the club.

In a 90-minute spell, Chelsea agreed to sell Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid in a deal worth around 35 million euros.

The Belgium worldwide, named best goalkeeper at the World Cup this summer, has signed a six-year deal after completing a medical on Thursday.

Chelsea's report does not confirm if the Blues hold an option to buy the player permanently or not, but it is believed that no such clause has been added to the deal.

Courtois said at his official unveiling: "Arriving at the best club in the world is a responsibility and an honour".

The goalkeeper has moved for a fee in the region of £31m and has signed a six-year contract.

It's taken until the Premier League deadline day for Courtois to move to Real Madrid.

He lifted two Premier League titles during his time at Stamford Bridge, establishing himself as number one despite the presence of Petr Cech.

Chelsea have completed the signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao for £71m - a world record for a goalkeeper. "And now Chelsea have been forced into going out and finding a replacement for Courtois".
