Barcelona announce signing of Real Sociedad keeper Claudio Bravo

Barcelona have announced an agreement to sign Real Sociedad goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

Barcelona have announced an agreement to sign Real Sociedad goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

Barca and La Real have been negotiating for Bravo since the end of last season and a deal was delayed due to Barca midfielder Jonathan dos Santos' resistance to join the Basques on a permanent basis as part of the deal.

The two clubs eventually reached a deal, believed to be worth around 12million euros (£9.6 million).

Bravo has agreed a four-year Barca contract.

He is the second goalkeeper to join Barcelona this summer, with 22-year-old Marc-Andre Ter Stegen signing from Borussia Monchengladbach last month.
