Barca to welcome Bravo next week

04 July 2014 02:02

Barcelona have announced that goalkeeper Claudio Bravo will undergo his medical with the club on Monday, as he puts the finishing touches on his move to the Catalan club.

Barca reached an agreement with Real Sociedad last month for the Chile captain as they sought to cover the departure of long-serving keeper Victor Valdes from the Nou Camp.

Bravo, whose transfer is reportedly worth around 12million euros (£9.6 million), has been on World Cup duty in Brazil this summer but he is due in Barcelona for a photo session on Sunday night before completing his move on Monday.

His medical is set for 9am local time and, if all goes to plan, the 31-year-old will sign a four-year contract with Barca before being presented to the media at around 1245.
