Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen linked with emergency Man City move

Manchester City announce that goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in training on Monday. But it is a short-term solution to his issues, and the 29-year old Dutchman will have to return to the Camp Nou eventually.

Bravo won two La Liga titles with Barcelona before moving to City in 2016, but an error-strewn first season provoked City to sign Brazilian Ederson from Benfica previous year to take over as first-choice 'keeper.

Daniel Grimshaw, 20, is the only other keeper in the first-team squad but he has not yet made a senior appearance.

The goalkeeper tweeted on Monday evening: "It doesn't matter what happened, or how bad it seems today, life goes on, and tomorrow no doubt will be better". The Belgian is out for three months with knee ligament damage.

I'm happy here, I do not want to talk about that yet. "For me, the most important thing is the way we play". When you have been as busy as I have been, you always fear a little emptiness.

City can make free-transfer signings until the end of this month or could apply for an emergency loan.

But City want a definitive assessment of Bravo's condition before deciding whether to recall Aro Muric, the Montenegro Under-21 worldwide, from his loan spell at NAC Breda or draft in a new goalkeeper alongside 20-year-old academy graduate Daniel Grimshaw.

His injury is a blow for manager Pep Guardiola, who got rid of two City goalkeepers in the close season.

The Chilean will fly to Barcelona for further tests later in the week.
