Manchester City made contact with Ivan Jatobá, agent of unattached goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri, on Tuesday to register a tentative interest in the 3-cap Brazil international, Globo Esporte reports.
Cavalieri is currently without a club after his short-term deal with Crystal Palace expired in June. He previously made 204 appearances for Fluminense after spells with Palmeiras, Liverpool and Cesena.
According to the report, City asked the player’s agent about his contractual situation, if he is training normally, and said Cavalieri was being considered. The agent confirmed this information to the Brazilian outlet.
Cavalieri has been considered by City because he has an Italian passport, would come at no cost, and has experience in Europe. With the veteran stopper currently having no contract, City would be able to sign him without any complications.
Furthermore, it is claimed by Globo Esporte that City are still interested in an experienced goalkeeper despite recalling Aro Muric from NAC Breda, but are not interested in spending a fortune on cover after Claudio Bravo suffered a serious injury in training.
