Claudio Bravo arrived Manchester Airport yesterday ahead of completing a move to Manchester City.
As reported by Goal earlier, the goalkeeper was expected to arrive from Spain yesterday afternoon ahead of becoming Pep Guardiola’s ninth summer signing.
Bravo will nearly double his salary with City, having accepted an annual wage of €6 million to leave the Spanish giants and become the Premier League side’s new first-choice goalkeeper.
Bravo’s arrival, and Guardiola’s preference for Willy Caballero in competitive action since the start of the Premier League season, casts further doubt over Joe Hart’s future.
It is understood that Manchester City are yet to receive a bid for the England No.1, with Everton heavily linked, but reports earlier yesterday claim Hart could stay beyond the end of the transfer window.
An official announcement of Bravo’s transfer could be delayed until later in the week as Barcelona look to tie up Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen as his replacement.
