City have agreed an initial fee of €16m + €4m in potential bonuses with Barcelona for goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. [Marca]

Bravo is unlikely to join before the Real Betis match on Saturday, as Barcelona are without the injured ter Stegen. [Marca]

Barcelona sources have admitted there is an agreement in principle to sell Claudio Bravo (33) to Manchester City. [Mundo Deportivo]

City Watch ‏@City_Watch 2m2 minutes ago
Barcelona sources admit the amount paid by City won't be 'spectacular', but appropriate for a 33-year-old.

[Mundo Deportivo]
City Watch ‏@City_Watch now3 seconds ago
The agreement is not yet official and will not be until Barcelona sign a replacement, with Ter Stegen currently injured. [Mundo Deportivo]

£20m is 'appropriate' for a bloke with two seasons left in him? Jesus!

Well Pep obvs rates him and had him in mind as soon as heard he had the City gig. Joe never had a chance. He will leave as a crowd favourite but annoyed at Pep and city. That's football.

I wish Joe could stay as no. 2 but that won't happen. I feel a lot more confident when he's in goal instead of the shaved willy. I trust Pep knows what he's doing....

...At least Zaba and Vinny are staying, I hope.

So I guess it's happening.

Hart leaving and Willy staying was not one of the scenarios I thought would happen this year. :think:

Apparently Pep likes a player who can play with the ball. Can't really argue. Name a player in the league who can play with the ball at his feet?

we've signed him by the way.

I can't remember the last time we spent so much money on a player... and no one really cared. It's an odd one.

Welcome to the club, i guess.

No one is doubting he's better than Hart... it's just that everyone knows that Hart is better than Willy. The wrong GK is leaving.

At least that's what bothers me.

His age concerns me slightly, also not sure if i seen it right but i think he has been given the number 1 jersey so i guess we'll see him Sunday.

He's better with his feet, but is he better as a keeper than hart? I'm... well, i am yet to be convinced that this isn't a mistake. And yeah, we're turfing out the wrong keeper, willy should be shown the door way before hart, but i don't think he'd settle for being the cup keeper.

Bravo is regretting his decision to leave Barcelona for several weeks and has informed his ex-teammates that he is unsettled at Man City. [DB]

Claudio Bravo (33) is unhappy at Man City and wishes to return to Barca, even if it means to be 2nd choice GK behind Ter Stegen. [Don Balon]

He can leave Manchester at 8 in the morning change in London and Paris and the train arrives in Barca at 9 30pm
Won't have to worry about the plane crashing.
