31-Year-Old Goalkeeper Barcelona La Liga
Claudio Bravo Contract Information:
Signed a four-year contract with FC Barcelona after transferring from Real Sociedad in June 2014.
Bravo will be the starting goalkeeper for Barcelona for their La Liga opener against Elche on Aug. 24, ESPN FC reports.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen suffered a back injury in training this week and will miss between two to three weeks, giving Bravo the early lead for the starting keeper job this season. Both players were competing for the role, and while ter Stegen remains the frontrunner once he is fit, Bravo, who spent the last eight seasons with Real Sociedad, could firm up the spot if he plays well early.
