Done Deal: Claudio Bravo joins Manchester City
Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has completed his move to Manchester City on a four-year contract, keeping him at the Etihad Stadium until the end of the 2018/19 season. The deal is thought to be around £15.4m.
“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. I have followed City’s progress in recent years and obviously know some of my new teammates from the Copa America,” the Chilean goalkeeper told the club’s official website.
“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.”
The 33-year-old Bravo’s arrival to the City could be the trouble for Joe Hart, who is now finding himself third in the pecking order.
Bravo becomes City’s seventh summer recruit, has won back-to-back La Liga titles and the Champions League in 2015 during his two years spell at the Camp Nou.
