Man City boss can snap up top quality Hart replacement for £16.7m

Barcelona are willing to sell Claudio Bravo for €20m (£16.7m) this summer if the Chilean pushes for a move, with Manchester City interested, according to reports from Sport.

The 33-year-old stopper has emerged as a target for new Citizens chief Pep Guardiola, who seemingly has doubts about his goalkeeping situation.

Joe Hart is currently embedded as the club’s No.1, but a series of errors over the course of the calendar year, including notable gaffes on England duty at EURO 2016, has seen his stock fall, while back-up man, Willy Caballero, has failed to make a genuine impact at the Etihad since his 2014 move to Manchester from Malaga.

And reports claim that Guardiola could address these concerns with Bravo, who may be available for £16.7m before the close of the window.

The South American ‘keeper has been Barca’s main glovesman ahead of Marc-Andre ter Stegen since the pair arrived in the summer of 2014, but it’s understood that the club favour keeping the German.

Should Bravo ask to leave he will be allowed to move on, with Valencia’s Diego Alves already being lined up.

There’s no indication that the La Liga-winning goalie wants a transfer and discussions will be held when he returns from his post Copa America holiday.
