Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo ruptures Achilles tendon

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is facing a lengthy spell out after damaging his Achilles tendon in training on Monday.

The Chile worldwide picked up the injury in Monday's training session and underwent scans in the afternoon.

No timescale has yet been put on the 35-year-old's return and he will now travel to Barcelona for specialist assessment later in the week.

Youngster Aro Muric was sent to NAC Breda on loan, leaving 20-year-old local lad Daniel Grimshaw as the only goalkeeper in any position to step in for Ederson if needed.

However, the keeper, signed from Barcelona for £15.4m in 2016, did provide manager Pep Guardiola with reliable back-up.

Bravo himself has attempted to put on a fearless face over the matter.

It's nowhere near as detrimental as Kevin De Bruyne's injury lay-off but Manchester City have reportedly been hit with another injury blow today.

The player tweeted: "No matter what happens, or how bad it looks today, life will go on, and tomorrow will certainly be better".

City sold former England goalkeeper Joe Hart to Burnley and ex-England Under-21 keeper Angus Gunn to Southampton in the summer.

Bravo, a substitute in City's opening two Premier League matches, made just three top-flight appearances for the champions last season.

The Chile worldwide will fly to Barcelona for tests on a ruptured tendon in his left foot tomorrow, which could potentially rule him out for up to six months.
