Man City wants Navas to replace Bravo on emergency loan deal


Manchester City are reportedly looking to bring in Keylor Navas on an emergency loan from Real Madrid to plug a gap in their goalkeeping ranks.

The Citizens have lost back-up keeper Claudio Bravo to an Achilles injury that is expected to rule the Chilean out of action for around six months.

Rookie stopper Daniel Grimshaw is City’s only other option, leaving Pep Guardiola facing a potential crisis if first choice Ederson is injured or suspended between now and February.

According to Spanish outlet AS, plans are already in place to sign Navas, with the Premier League expected to sanction the loan deal if an agreement is reached between City and Madrid.

Barcelona’s Jasper Cillessen, who has struggled for playing time at Camp Nou, is also being mooted

Despite the growing interest in taking him away from the Spanish capital, Keylor has always insisted that his future lies in Madrid, although the Costa Rican keeper’s first-team place has been weakened with the arrival of Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.

Navas still has two years left on his contract but Madrid would reportedly let him go to Manchester City if he put in a transfer request.

His potential departure would leave Los Blancos with Courtois, Casilla and Lunin as their goalkeeping options, depending on what happens with Luca Zidane.
