Bravo reveals reason behind Barca exit

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has revealed the reason behind his decision to leave Barcelona for a move to the Premier League.

The Chile international completed his move to the Citizens from the La Liga champions in the recent transfer window, and Bravo has cited his lack of game-time at his former team as the reason behind his move.

"I was honest and told Barcelona that I didn't want to sit on the bench," he told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

"They offered me another contract, but we were honest with each other and I didn't want to spend four years hardly playing," he added.

The 33-year-old became increasingly frustrated at having to shared the number one jersey with Marc-Andre ter Stegen, but maintained that they never had any problems.

"In the end, it is frustrating because what was said isn't true," Bravo added.

"We've never had any problems – in fact we benefited from the competition."
