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.
