Claudio Bravo: Why I left Barcelona for Man City...

Claudio Bravo has revealed why he swapped Barcelona for Manchester City this summer.

Bravo made a £17million move from Barca to City over the summer and while the Citizens are most certainly a big club, many were surprised to see the Chilean leave the Nou Camp.

Regarding his move to the Etihad Stadium, the 33-year-old has explained that he joined City due to the new philosophy implemented at the club by manager Pep Guardiola.

Bravo said: "Mainly I decided to come here because I share this team's philosophy and way of playing, and I wanted to be part of it.

"I was also attracted by the fact that I'm more than just the goalkeeper - I help start attacks from the back."
