Pep Guardiola Insists Claudio Bravo Won’t Be Returning To Barcelona

share on:

Pep Guardiola has dismissed claims goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is unhappy at Manchester City.

Some reports in the Spanish media in midweek suggested the 33-year-old had struggled to settle since his £15.4m move to the Etihad Stadium from Barcelona in August.

Claudio Bravo was sent off on his return to the Nou Camp in the Champions League in October, and has kept just two clean sheets in his last 14 games.

A report in Spain this week suggested that the keeper has told his team-mates that he wants to rejoin Barcelona, even though that would mean him being back up to Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

However, Guardiola said: “I didn’t read that. Sometimes, when you [journalists] come here, Simon [Heggie, City’s head of media relations] will make a briefing as to what you are going to ask me. But he didn’t speak about that issue.

“I don’t read too much of newspapers, of the Twitters and Instagrams and Facebooks. I spoke with Bravo in the last days, and with his wife as well. I saw him here. Their little daughter as well, but I couldn’t speak with her because she is just one year old. I couldn’t speak with her. And he told me he is so happy.”
