The 30-year-old is just one of a number of goalkeepers said to be under consideration at the Etihad Stadium as the club continue to follow through with Joe Hart’s exile from the starting XI, raising doubts over his position as long term number one.
Romanian Costel Pantilimon has taken over the custodial duties for the title hopefuls lately, but he is still not considered to be the ideal solution to the side’s problems between the sticks as Hart’s alarming dip in form continues.
Bravo has been credited as one of Sociedad’s better performers this season, impressing in both La Liga as well as the Champions League and was a key figure in the club’s impressive campaign last term as they surpassed all expectations and managed to notch up a fourth placed finish.
However, City could face some stiff competition for his signature as current Spanish Champions Barcelona are also said to be monitoring his situation as they carry on their search for a replacement for Victor Valdes.
