Bravo warming up to face Betis at the Camp Nou | MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Claudio Bravo has published an open letter of thanks to everyone associated with FC Barcelona on his Twitter and Instagram accounts in which he writes that “I wish to express in these lines what is going through my head now that the time has come to say goodbye to such a grand institution as FC Barcelona, whose colours I have been able to proudly defend for two seasons.”

The Chilean, whose departure for Manchester City was announced on Thursday, has heartfelt words of gratitude for “the way I have been treated by the coaching staff at FC Barcelona, for the moments I have experienced with such great players, for the love of all the club staff and, of course, for the support and affection that the fans have shown to me at all times … I can say that you have made me feel at home and Barça will always have a place in my heart.”

As fate should have it, the Champions League draw made on the same day pitted Barça and Man City together in the same Group C. It means that the goalkeeper will be coming back to the Camp Nou sooner than expected, on Wednesday 19 October, but this time wearing the shirt of the visiting side.
