Real Sociedad keeper Claudio Bravo, who is currently preparing for the 2014 World Cup with the Chile squad, has reportedly agreed personal terms for a move to Barcelona, leaving the two clubs to negotiate a transfer fee.
It’s no secret that Barcelona are looking for a second goalkeeper this, having already secured the signing of young German international Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, following the departures of Víctor Valdés and Juan Manuel Pinto.
Following reports at the weekend, that Andoni Zubizarreta met with the agent of Real Sociedad keeper, Claudio Bravo, it appears that those talks progressed well. So well indeed that according to El Diario Vasco, personal terms were agreed and now it’s up to Barcelona to agree a transfer fee with the Basque club.
Bravo has never hidden his hopes of playing for one of Europe’s leading clubs, whilst it seems he’s also been reassured that if he goes to Barcelona, he’ll be treated equally to Ter Stegen, when it comes to competing for a place in the starting eleven.
The 31-year-old has completed an excellent season between the posts for Real Sociedad and whilst he has a release clause of €30 million, it is thought that Barcelona will be able to negotiate a much lower price.
