CLAUDIO BRAVO LEAVES MANCHESTER CITY

The Chilean goalkeeper, now 37, made 61 appearances for City after joining from Barcelona in 2016 and kept 20 clean sheets.

Bravo was signed to fit in with Pep Guardiola’s playing from the back strategy and made 30 appearances during his first campaign.

Capped 123 times by his country, the arrival of Ederson in 2017/18 meant Bravo’s first team opportunities were largely reserved for cup competitions or to cover injuries.

In fact, more than half of his City appearances came in cup matches, with only seven Premier League starts since that first season with the Club.

In 2018/19, Bravo ruptured his Achilles tendon and was sidelined for almost 10 months.

Bravo will be best remembered for bring a new style of goalkeeping to City – the so-called ‘sweeper keeper’, with his excellent technique and control with the ball at his feet.

City fans will also recall his penalty shoot-out heroics, first against Wolves at the Etihad in 2017/18 and again when his save from Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum secured the 2019 Community Shield.

And last season, he made a superb late save from Aston Villa’s Bjorn Engels to preserve City’s 2-1 lead in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.

That gave him the last of the six winners

medals he won during his stay at the Etihad.
