Confirmed: City sign Bravo

Claudio Bravo has left Barcelona for Manchester City on a four-year deal, after two years at Camp Nou.

Chile international Bravo moved to Barca from Real Sociedad in 2014 and leaves for a reported £17m [€19.8m] shortly after the Catalans confirmed the capture of Jasper Cillessen from Ajax, the Netherlands international now battling Marc-Andre Ter Stegen for the gloves.

“I’m very proud to be joining Manchester City. I know the club is building something very special and I hope I can be part of many successes in the coming years,” Bravo told City’s official website.

“I have followed City’s progress in recent years and obviously know some of my new team-mates from the Copa America. It is not easy to leave a club like Barcelona where I had two fantastic years, but the opportunity to work with Pep Guardiola was too good to refuse.

“Now I will challenge the other great goalkeepers the club has and together I hope we can win many trophies.”
