Manchester City make decision on new goalkeeper after Claudio Bravo injury

Manchester City will not be bringing in a new goalkeeper either on an emergency loan or from the free agents list to replace crocked Claudio Bravo.

Instead, City have decided to recall Aro Muric from his loan spell at NAC Breda, despite sources from the Dutch club denying that possibility.

Muric will return to Manchester tomorrow, cutting short his first loan away from the Etihad after just one appearance in which the 19-year-old kept a clean sheet.

The Montenegrin under-21 international will become the second-choice goalkeeper behind Ederson and may get some Carabao Cup appearances if Pep Guardiola continues his policy of rotating keepers in the domestic cups.

In their official statement, NAC Breda said the City Football Group will help them find a quick and appropriate solution to the vacancy left by Muric.

Our colleagues at the B-side Rats report that City will financially compensate NAC for this unforeseen situation.
