Navas to Manchester City?

Manchester City are reportedly looking at a surprise emergency loan move for Keylor Navas with Claudio Bravo expected to be sidelined for the long-term.

The Citizens lost Bravo to a serious Achilles injury earlier in the week and it has now been confirmed that the Chilean could be sidelined for at least six months.

As such, City are worried about the depth in the goalkeeping department with rookie keeper Daniel Grimshaw being the only other option than first choice Ederson and they are now said to have requested for an emergency loan.

According to Spanish outlet AS, plans are already in place for the Citizens to sign Navas with the Premier League expected to sanction the temporary move, once an agreement is reached between the sides.

The Costa Rican international has racked nearly 150 appearances during his time at the Bernabeu but his future has been called into question with the recent arrival of Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea.
