Catalan sports tabloid Sport, report that Barca are looking to replace second choice keeper Jose Manuel Pinto with Chilean international Claudio Bravo (26).
The Barcelona staff still regard Victor Valdes as their undisputed first choice, but they are seeking a more secure back-up. Their main target is Claudio Bravo of Real Sociedad.
The keeper is Marcelo Bielsa’s first choice for the Chilean national team, and has only let in 16 goals in 16 games in Liga Adelante this season. It is to be noted though that Bravo has only just extended his deal with Real Sociedad to 2013.
Barcelona have apparently been tracking the market for a keeper who is both good coming off the line and with the ball at his feet and Bravo seems to fit both those aspects.
