Barcelona FC skipper, Claudio Bravo has successfully completed his move to Manchester City. The Chile international who flew to England on Tuesday and had his medical on Wednesday was snapped up for £17million.
Speaking on his four-year deal, the 33 year-old who made 75 appearances for the Catalans 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.’
Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola described Claudio as : ‘a fantastic goalkeeper and an excellent addition to our squad. He has experience and great leadership qualities and is in the prime of his life. He is a goalkeeper I have admired for a number of years and I’m really happy he is now a City player.’
