Claudio Bravo set to leave Manchester City for Real Betis

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is set to join Real Betis after his current contract expires, according to Goal.

The 37-year-old signed a short-term extension to stay at the club until the end of the club’s European campaign in June, but now it seems he will leave for the Spanish club.

The experienced goalkeeper will join his former manager Manuel Pellegrini who was announced the manager of Real Betis last month, replacing interim coach Alexis Trujillo.

Betis currently have one of the worst defences in La Liga, with Los Verdiblancos conceding 60 goals last campaign as they finished 15 in the league.

If Bravo comes to the Spanish club, then that could signal the end for Joel Robles, their current number one who previously played for Wigan Athletic and Everton in England.

The Chile international started his career by joining the youth ranks of Colo-Colo where he went to feature for the senior team in 123 league appearances.

After spending a great portion of his career at Real Sociedad and then Barcelona, he joined Manchester City in 2016 for £13.75m on a four-year contract.

However, he faced a difficult first season in Manchester, with the keeper having one of the worst save percentage in the top division, and so Ederson replaced him as the club’s number one goalkeeper.

Still, he has contributed well to the club as a back-up in the previous three campaigns. He has earned 61 total appearances for the Premier League outfit, with 20 clean sheets to his name.
