Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has admitted that he is flattered by the interest being shown in him. The Chilean international was linked with Celtic last month, while the likes of Arsenal and Besiktas have also been mentioned as possible destinations in recent weeks.
The shot-stopper has agreed to extend his deal at the Citizens until the end of the Premier League season, but he will be available on a free transfer in August, and the 37-year-old says he will make a decision on his future in due course:
“I’ve read the names of the clubs that have been linked with me and I regard that as an honour because they are very good clubs. I’m proud that I have attracted interest from the clubs mentioned.”
“What I and my family are looking for is a club with stability and a comfortable environment to live. It depends on several factors, it depends on the club and the project that the club has. I will consider all my options and make a decision soon.”
Reports in Chile in May suggested that Bravo, along with Watford’s Ben Foster and Burnley’s Joe Hart were among the names that Celtic were considering to replace Fraser Forster.
Whether they could match the Chilean’s wage demands, though, it does seem doubtful, and the Hoops may well be waiting to see if they can re-sign Forster from Southampton first before making a move for another keeper.
