A source close to Bravo said “the deal with City is almost done” but will Guardiola pay €20-25m for a 33-year-old player? Mundo Deportivo report the Chile international, with €42million release clause could leave the club if it comes with an offer between €20-25million.
Bravo will start in the Spanish Super cup and the first day of League season just a week later. Bravo has been the club’s number one goalkeeper and is keen to hold onto his position despite pressure from Ter Stegen. Both players and their representatives met with club executives two weeks ago to ensure their future was with Barcelona.
It’s likely whoever misses out domestically will make the move to Manchester before the window closes. City are keen to add a goalkeeper suited to Guardiola’s playing out from the back style and both men could superbly facilitate the task required by the former Barcelona manager, now at City.
