Keeper Eyes Move To Manchester City To Replace Injured Claudio Bravo

Keeper Eyes Move To Manchester City To Replace Injured Claudio Bravo

Manchester City could be forced into the emergency loan market for a goalkeeper as Claudio Bravo looks to be out for an extended amount of time leaving Pep Guardiola with now back up goalkeeper.

Someone grab the Amazon Prime cameras because maybe there's going to be some drama at Manchester City, lord knows the way they're going about things after two games it might be the only down an another season of ups.

All or Nothing is a brilliant documentary but it's not like there was ever any question last season that things were going to end up rosey so it's lacking any real life drama.

It was expected that this season would be a little bit more difficult for Pep Guardiola's side but the way they've dispatched Arsenal and Huddersfield already it's looking pretty ominous for the rest of the Premier League.

However not everything is perfect at the Etihad. Stand in keeper Claudio Bravo could be out for the rest of the season after snapping an achilles tendon in training yesterday, leaving Ederson as the club's only senior goalie.

That would allow City to make an emergency loan signing, under the transfer window rules, and according to Mundo Deportivo it could be Barcelona stand in Jasper Cillessen with the Dutchman reportedly wanting the move.

Cillessen is reportedly fed up with life on the bench behind Marc-André ter Stegen which makes it a little surprising that he's eyeing up a move to Manchester City really.

There seems little to no chance that Ederson could be displaced as number one at the Etihad and Cillessen would only be moving to the Premier League till the end of the season initially before Bravo was back fit.

City are down to just Ederson with Angus Gunn having left for Southampton on a £13.5 million deal and Joe Hart having moved to Burnley after two seasons on loan at Torino and West Ham.

20 year old Daniel Grimshaw is now Guardiola's other choice than his first team goalkeeper so it's likely someone else will come into the club.

Despite the transfer window closing Premier League clubs can get emergency loans till the end of the month to cover for long term injuries.
