Only a few details are missing for the news to be official. The Chilean would return to Spain.
Everything is ready for you Claudio Bravo be the new goalkeeper of Real Betis. The Chilean goalkeeper, 37, is an express request of the new coach, Manuel Pellegrini, to reinforce an area that has recently given many problems.
The austral has quality experience, knows the Spanish league – he was in Real Sociedad and Barcelona – and enjoys the confidence of the coach. During the last days, Antonio Cordón, the Betic club’s sports director, has maintained contact with the Chilean goalkeeper’s environment and his signing now enters the final stretch.
Bravo ends contract with Manchester City this season and could sign as a free agent. The Chilean, who believes he still has a couple of good seasons left in goal, likes the possibility of returning to Spain and would be more than delighted to work with Manuel Pellegrini.
Of course, the economic part is still the last step, as Bravo would have to reduce his salary considerably. Sources close to the player assure that this would not be a problem and that it will be a matter of days for the signing to become official.
