BARCELONA, Spain - Barcelona says it will sign Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo to a four-year contract after reaching a transfer agreement with Real Sociedad.

The 31-year-old Bravo is captain of his national team and playing in the World Cup in Brazil.

Bravo spent eight seasons at Sociedad after starting his career at Chilean club Colo-Colo.

He will join countryman Alexis Sanchez at Barcelona.
