When Liverpool spent £66m on bringing in Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson from Roma, many fans were stunned by the world-record price tag.
Chelsea decided to do one better a few weeks later by smashing the record to land Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao.
The Telegraph reports that the Blues spent £71.6m to land the 24-year-old, who was a replacement for Thibaut Courtois.
That amount of money will certainly throw pressure onto the player’s shoulders, but so far he has been coping.
On Thursday night, the Spaniard made a few saves to deny Hungarian opponents Vidi from finding the back of the net.

In the end, Chelsea took all three points from their Group L clash in the Europa League thanks to a 70th-minute goal from Alvaro Morata.
It was not the most convincing of displays from the Blues, but they got the job done at Stamford Bridge.
After the match, some supporters discussed Kepa’s qualities, and plenty believe that the keeper is beginning to show that he was worth the money.
