The Citizens look set to sign Claudio Bravo from Barcelona as a direct replacement for Joe Hart – who has reportedly opened talks with Everton over a loan move to Goodison Park.
But Manchester Evening News claim the Chile international may not be Pep Guardiola’s final signing of the summer, with the Etihad outfit still in need of an established centre-half.
John Stones and Aleksandar Kolarov started at the centre of defence against Sunderland last weekend, with Vincent Kompany still facing a race for first-team fitness.
And it’s claimed that if Guardiola isn’t convinced by the Belgium international, he could revive his interest in Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci.
The Premier League title hopefuls were reportedly offered the 29-year-old earlier in the summer, but only for a transfer fee in excess of £50million.
Nothing suggests the Old Lady have altered their valuation of Bonucci, who impressed for Italy at Euro 2016 earlier this summer.
