On Wednesday evening, Los Blancos announced the acquisition of Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who has fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming a Real player.
Having previously played for city rivals Atletico Madrid, the Belgium No. 1 is now at the club he has always wanted to be at following his €40 million (R618 million) switch from the Blues.
Speaking at his unveiling on Thursday, Courtois said that playing in the Premier League improved him as a footballer.
"I think I'm a lot more mature and I've gained quite a lot of muscle in the Premier League," he said, according to AS.
"I am more experienced and I have become a better keeper. Everybody can always improve in whatever they do and I think my best is still ahead of me."
Former Real boss Zinedine Zidane was reportedly not keen on luring the 26-year-old to Spain as he wanted his son, Luca, to challenge the likes of Andriy Lunin and Keylor Navas for a place in the first team.
Courtois has already been capped 65 times for Belgium, and joins Real with 353 matches of experience at the highest level under his belt.
