The Daily Mail noted it appears that Guardiola considers it necessary to sign a new goalkeeper for the Citizens, who currently rely on Joe Hart, reports Efe.

Guardiola wants to introduce his style of play at City, exactly as he did previously with Bayern Munich, which basically depends on solid possession with stronger goalkeeping, and the Spaniard asked the management of the Manchester side to get him goalkeepers to help him implement his philosophy.

Bravo, who has a valid contract with Barcelona until 2018, has all the qualities sought by Guardiola in a goalie.

However, City are aware that signing Bravo short term might be problematic, and the club is considering other options, such as Standard Liege goalkeeper Viktor Valdes or Real Sociedad goalie Geronimo Rulli.
