Bravo is set to join Manchester City on a three-year deal with the further option of a fourth. He will become Pep Guardiola’s number one goalkeeper and is expected to move for a fee in the region of £13million. Barcelona are set to complete the signing of Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Cillesen, who will replace Bravo in the Barcelona squad.
The move will ensure that Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart will become the club’s third choice goalkeeper if he fails to secure a move away from the Etihad Stadium.
