Barcelona, Manchester City face fight for La Liga star

Published Add your comment

Real Sociedad goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has attracted the attention of both Barcelona and Manchester City as they look towards fresh options for next season, according to talkSPORT.

Bravo has been a consistent performer during eight years in La Liga with Sociedad, helping the Basque giants earn a return to the Champions League with a fourth-placed finish last season.

City have been assessing their options in between the sticks due to Joe Hart's patchy form in the early months of the campaign, with the Chilean international well know to Manuel Pellegrini.

Barca are also long-term admirers of the stopper as they start to contemplate life without Victor Valdes, but have so far been put off by a £25m release clause.

The 30-year-old is under contract with Sociedad until 2017, with both Barca and City thought to be hopeful of negotiating a smaller fee in search of a cut-price experienced option.

City fans may remember watching Bravo play for Chile at Wembley last month, keeping a clean sheet at Wembley as the South American side ran out comfortable winners.
