Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has landed in Manchester to complete a £14.5m transfer move to Manchester City.
Claudio Bravo is all set for a summer move to Manchester City. Foottheball sources claim that the Chilean goalkeeper has agreed to join Guardiola’s refurbished Man City squad in the new season.
Bravo is expected to feature more as substitute for Marc-Andre ter Stegen in Barcelona’s new season and the Chilean goalkeeper has opted to join Manchester City in search of a regular first team action.
With rumours linking England goalkeeper Joe Hart with a summer exit, it is believed that Guardiola wants to make Bravo his Etihad No1 due to his abilities with the ball at feet coupled with loads of experience.
Reports confirm that Man City have agreed in principle with Bravo and Barcelona and would pay £14.5m for the Chilean goalkeeper.
Earlier, Barcelona were not willing to finalise the deal before they roped in a replacement for Bravo, but recent reports confirm that the Spanish giants are on brink of signing Ajax keeper Jasper Cillessen.
Bravo featured in Barcelona’s La Liga opener against Real Betis on Saturday but the former Real Sociedad player was snapped boarding a flight in Barcelona before he landed on the Manchester Airport on Tuesday.
