Chilean star Claudio Bravo signed for Manchester City this summer in a €18m deal, after Pep Guardiola decided there was no way he was going to accept Joe Hart as his goalkeeper.

Bravo came in with a big reputation, after winning a number of titles at Barcelona during his two seasons at the club.

However, his performances at Manchester City have been patchy, and he made errors in important matches against Barcelona and Manchester United.

On Thursday, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo have an article on the Manchester City goalkeeper with the headline ‘Claudio Bravo and the ghosts of the past’.

Moving to Manchester City, Bravo faced the same situation with Joe Hart, but on this occasion it’s been more pronounced because the manager pushed Hart out in favour of Bravo.

With Hart doing well for Torino, and already a big favourite there himself, Bravo is having to convince Manchester City’s followers that Pep was right.

They love this kind of slant in Barcelona. Whilst they’d wish well for Bravo, they don’t want him to be a runaway success so much it would make Barca look silly for selling him.
