Pinto: Permanent switch
Barcelona have made back-up goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto's move to the Camp Nou permanent.
The shot-stopper joined the club in January as cover for the injured regular back-up keeper Albert Jorquera.
The 32-year-old made his debut in April against Deportivo La Coruna and has since played on two more occasions.
Barcelona have paid second division side Celta Vigo 500,000 euros (£392,000) to make his switch permanent.
Pinto signed a one-year contract on Friday, with an option for a second.
