It's doubtful that Claudio Bravo will decide to leave City this summer. He's well paid and will at least get some game time in cup competitions, but the Chilean has never really settled in England and it's a shame to see a fantastic career end on such a low note.

Bravo arrived at City in 2016 as part of Pep Guardiola's Manchester makeover but had a dreadful debut season, being replaced by Willy Caballero for the final months of City's campaign. Rated as one of the worst signings of the season, Bravo was quickly relegated to bench duty as City spent big on Ederson. The Chilean has shown glimpses of his former glory, notably saving some penalties as City enjoyed a triumphant League Cup run last season, but he just doesn't seem suited to the English game and has next to no chance of ever dislodging Ederson from the number one spot.

At 35, Bravo is in the final years of his career but could be first choice back in Spain or elsewhere in Europe. Sources close to City also suggest there is a little tension between the keeper and Guardiola, and Bravo could still decide to put his City nightmare behind him and move on to pastures new.
