Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Iago Herrerin believes interest in Kepa Arrizabalaga is ‘logical’ but he is ‘Athletic until death’.
The two compete for a starting place at the San Mames but Spanish international Kepa’s contract expires in June and he has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.
“Interest in him is logical, but he is Athletic Club until death,” Herrerin is quoted as telling reporters at a press conference on Tuesday by Marca.
“He is young but he is level-headed and it makes total sense that teams have registered an interest in him, that is normal.
“We don’t know what his future holds as the talks are between him and the club, but he is an Athletic goalkeeper until June.
“We cannot concentrate on this situation as we have a job to do on the pitch that preoccupies us.”
