Claudio Bravo signing confirmedChilean goal keeper joins in £15.4m deal from Barcelona

Claudio Bravo has joined City from Barcelona on a four-year deal, the club have confirmed on their official website.

The Chilean goalkeeper, who has 106 international caps, has cost a reported £15.4m and is expected to go straight into the team to face West Ham on Sunday.

Bravo said: “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 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.”
