Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez has confirmed a deal is in place with Manchester City for the transfer of Claudio Bravo.
During the week it emerged the Premier League club were closing in on a €25 million move for the Chilean goalkeeper, whom Pep Guardiola wants to replace Joe Hart.
Despite those reports, Bravo started Saturday’s La Liga opener against Real Betis, but it looks set to prove to be his last game for the Catalan club.
“We have the beginning of an agreement in principle with Manchester City for Claudio Bravo,” Barcelona revealed.
Barcelona will hope to have the injured Marc-Andre ter Stegen back for next week’s trip to Athletic Bilbao.
