Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is expected to travel to England on Thursday to finalise his move to Manchester City , according to reports in Spain.
The Premier League side have moved for the Chilean after Pep Guardiola decided that he wanted to replace Joe Hart as his first-choice goalkeeper.
The England international was dropped for City’s season opener against Sunderland and now the club have agreed a £21m fee for the goalkeeper
Barcelona boss Luis Enrique was coy when reporters quizzed about him the Chilean’s future on Tuesday morning.
But, according to Catalan newspaper Sport, the 33-year-old is set to fly to England on Thursday to complete a move to the Etihad.
Barcelona had wanted to keep hold of Bravo, but Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s desire to be the club’s No.1 goalkeeper has forced them to reconsider.
At 24, Ter Stegen is viewed as the better long-term option and as such he will become Barca’s first choice from this season onwards.
