On Thursday, Spanish football club FC Barcelona announced their first-choice goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo, was sold to English club Manchester City F.C. for €18 million on a four-year deal. Manchester City is obliged to pay €2 million as add-ons.

33-year-old Claudio Bravo joined the Catalonians in the 2014 summer transfer window from Real Sociedad to replace Víctor Valdés. Bravo conceded only 43 goals in 75 matches overall, 72 La Liga matches, for the club.

In 2014, Bravo did not concede a single goal in nine consecutive league matches and set a new La Liga record for consecutive minutes without a concession. That season, he conceded only eighteen goals and won the Zamora Trophy awarded to the goalkeeper with the lowest goal-conceded-per-match ratio. He was named in the La Liga Team of the Season.

In two seasons at Camp Nou, Bravo won eight trophies — two La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys, and one each of UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup, and Super Copa de España. Last year, Bravo led Chile to their maiden Copa América title and successfully defended the title this year in the Centenario edition of the tournament. He was named Goalkeeper of the Tournament in both tournaments.

After signing Manchester City, Bravo said, “It is not easy to leave a club like Barcelona where I had two fantastic years, but the opportunity to work with Pep Guardiola was too good to refuse.”

Earlier on Thursday, Barcelona announced signing Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen from AFC Ajax for €13 million.

Bravo faces Barcelona in the Champions League group stage, as the draw on Thursday placed Barcelona and Manchester City both in Group C.

In association football signings this week, on Wednesday English football club Manchester United F.C. announced the signing of Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan from German club Borussia Dortmund; and on Thursday Spanish club Málaga CF announced signing striker Sandro Ramírez from FC Barcelona.

Mkhitaryan joins Manchester United[]

The Armenian captain signed a four-year contract with Manchester United, which was the third signing under José Mourinho this season. In his contract, Mhkitarayan has an option to continue with The Red Devils for the fifth season.

Mkhitaryan is the nation’s top scorer with nineteen goals so far.

After agreeing to the terms Henrikh Mkhitaryan said, “I am very proud to join Manchester United, this move is a dream come true for me.”

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke explained the transfer saying, “Manchester had made us an exceptionally generous offer. If we had not taken them up on it, then the player would have gone a year later in 2017 on a free transfer.”((de))

Mkhitaryan is the third signing of the club this season.

Sandro is Málaga’s new striker[]

Málaga CF signed 20-year-old striker Sandro Ramírez on a three-year term from Barcelona.

On Friday, Neymar Jr agreed to a five-year contract extension with FC Barcelona, Zlatan Ibrahimović to a one-year contract with Manchester United F.C. as a free agent, and Nolito joined Manchester City F.C. from Celta de Vigo for a four-year term.

End of speculations about Neymar’s future[]

Previously, Barcelona received offers for Neymar from Paris Saint Germain, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Real Madrid. But on Friday, Neymar agreed to sign a five-year contract extension with the blaugranes. Neymar has scored 85 goals in 141 appearances for Barça winning eight trophies. This year, he finished third in the FIFA Ballon d’Or.

Per the contract extension, Neymar’s buyout clause is €200million for the first season which would rise to €250million after the end of the second season. The formal presentation of the extension is to be two weeks later before Neymar leaves for his international duties for the Olympics 2016 in his homeland.

After the agreement, Neymar tweeted, “Very happy to continue living this dream!((pt)) Long Live Barcelona and long live Catalunya((ca))“.

Ibrahimović and Mourinho reunite[]

Zlatan’s contract with French club Paris Saint Germain expired in June and Zlatan indicated his next move to Manchester United tweeting, “Time to let the world know. My next destination is @ManUtd [Manchester United]”. Zlatan has made 180 appearances for Paris and scored 156 goals. He became the club’s top scorer and helped the club win two domestic titles in a row, scoring 38 goals in Ligue 1 last season.

Former Swedish captain Zlatan played under José Mourinho at Italian club FC Internazionale Milano‎ in the 2008–2009 season before Zlatan left for Pep Guardiola‘s FC Barcelona in exchange for Samuel Eto’o.

After completing his second signing of the season, Mourinho said, “Zlatan needs no introduction. The statistics speak for themselves.” Debuting in 1999, Zlatan has won domestic titles in four different nations and six different clubs winning the ‘Swedish Footballer of the Year’ nine consecutive times.

After agreeing to the terms Zlatan said, ” I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester United and am looking forward to playing in the Premier League. It goes without saying that I cannot wait to work with Jose Mourinho once again.”

Arsenal F.C. tried to persuade Zlatan when he was 17 years old, when manager Arsène Wenger asked him to do a trial with the club. He declined the offer; recalling the incident later, he explained, “Zlatan doesn’t do auditions.”

At international level, Zlatan is Sweden’s all-time top scorer with 62 goals in 116 games. He retired from the Swedish team last month after their Euro exit.

At Barcelona, Zlatan won five trophies in one season, but clashed with Guardiola. He is likely to face Guardiola’s Manchester City in their local derby.

Nolito to work with Guardiola for a longer period[]

Manchester City under Pep Guardiola‘s management signed Nolito from Spanish club Celta Vigo. At Celta Vigo, he scored 39 goals in 106 appearances.

Nolito joined FC Barcelona B in 2008 just when Guardiola vacated the manager spot of the reserve team. Three years later, Nolito was promoted to the first team and played five matches under Guardiola. With limited playing time with Barcelona, he moved to Portuguese club S.L. Benfica.

Scoring 16 goals in 63 matches for Benfica, he was transferred to the Celts after a short loan to Granada CF. In three seasons with Celta Vigo, Nolito gained a place in Spain’s international team. Playing four matches in UEFA Euro 2016, Nolito scored one goal against Turkey.

Nolito has been allotted the Number 9 jersey.

Alves spent eight seasons with the Catalonians when the club signed him from Sevilla FC. Making his debut for Barça in 2008, Alves played 391 matches and he played the second most games of any foreign player in the Catalan jersey after Lionel Messi. In his last league appearance for Barça, he provided an assist to Luis Suárez which was Alves’s 100th assist in La Liga.

Alves won 23 trophies with Barclona — six La Liga, four Copa del Rey, four Supercopa de España, three UEFA Champions League, three UEFA Super Cups and three FIFA Club World Cups.

Last season Alves extended his contract, as FC Barcelona had a transfer ban imposed by FIFA. Robert Fernández said in the press conference that Alexis Vidal was signed with awareness of Alves’s possible departure. He also said, “This is personal decision that the club has to accept”.

Alves posted on Instagram saying, “I’m privileged, a hard-working and honourable footballer who’s been lucky enough to wear the shirt of the best club in the world in a wonderful decade for the club thanks to the quality of its players and coaches”((es)).

FC Barcelona has invited him to address club supporters at the 2016–17 season start in farewell.

Today, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen took first place in the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. Verstappen won the first race of his career whilst also making his debut for new team – Red Bull Racing – having made the move up from Red Bull’s junior team, Scuderia Toro Rosso. Verstappen became the youngest driver ever to win a grand prix at 18 years and 228 days old. He is the first Dutch driver to win a grand prix. Furthermore he became the youngest race leader and youngest podium finisher in Formula One history.

Verstappen was promoted to Red Bull just before the start of the Spanish Grand Prix and replaced former Red Bull driver Daniil Kvyat who subsequently returned to Toro Rosso, whom he drove for back in 2014.

Verstappen went on to win the Spanish Grand Prix having qualified in fourth place, one place behind new teammate, Daniel Ricciardo following the qualifying session on Saturday. Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes-Benz was on pole (starting in first position) for the race alongside fellow teammate, Nico Rosberg. The race began poorly for Mercedes as both drivers crashed out in the opening lap of the race after making contact with each other. The highpoint of the race was the battle for grid positions one and four, which was fought out between Red Bull and Ferrari. Both sets of teams gained and lost positions at regular intervals, but it was Red Bull’s Max Verstappen who took the victory amid immense pressure from Ferrari’s Kimi Räikkönen in second. Verstappen led for the last 32 laps of the race and finished with a time of 1:31.684. Second and third place went to Räikkönen and Vettel of Ferrari with Red Bull’s Ricciardo finishing in fourth position.

Max Verstappen’s victory saw him gain 25 points and took him to sixth position in the Driver Standings with a total of 38 points. The Spanish Grand Prix was the fifth race of the 2016 Formula One season. The next race is the Monaco Grand Prix from Circuit de Monaco in Monte Carlo on May 29.
