Thibaut Courtois has completed his Real Madrid medical having finalised his £38million move from Chelsea.
The Belgian stopper, 26, was given a hero’s welcome on his arrival at the Bernabeu as he finally bagged his move to Spain on a six-year deal.
Courtois has been angling for a move back to Madrid all summer in order to spend more time with his family.

Just a day before the Premier League transfer window shut, the ex-Atletico star got his wish.
Chelsea signed Athletic Bilbao No1 Kepa Arrizabalaga in a world-record £71.6m deal to replace their star stopper.
In return, they allowed Courtois to walk, while Mateo Kovacic moved the other way, joining the Blues on loan for the season.
Courtois arrived in Madrid for his medical on Thursday – undergoing it at La Moraleja University Hospital.
And he was greeted in style, as avid supporters turned up to give him a warm – and loud – welcome.
It was just the reception Courtois would have hoped for, after he was slammed by Chelsea fans after posting a heartfelt goodbye.
