Man City’s Bravo considering NYCFC move in summer – sources

Claudio Bravo is considering an offer to join Major League Soccer outfit New York City FC when his contract expires at Manchester City this summer, sources have told ESPN.

Chile goalkeeper Bravo, who helped City win their third successive Carabao Cup at the weekend after a 2-1 Wembley win against Aston Villa, wants to leave the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season in order to secure regular football elsewhere.nike cheap nfl jerseys

Bravo has endured a tough time in the Premier League with City, with Guardiola having signed Brazil international Ederson as his replacement in 2017 following a series of costly mistakes during his first season at the club.7

But the 36-year-old has also been a key factor behind the scenes at the club, helping to mentor Ederson and the club’s younger goalkeepers.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

While City are aware of wider interest in Bravo, there are attempts to persuade him to join NYCFC — City’s sister club within the City Football Group — when his time at the Etihad comes to an end.

And while Ederson will remain the No. 1, the emergence of Steffen — a $7 million signing from Columbus Crew last July — and Kosovo keeper Ari Mujic, who is on loan at Nottingham Forest, has prompted Guardiola to sanction the departure of Bravo this summer.
