Barcelona not interested in offloading Man City target Bravo

Barcelona have no plans to sell Claudio Bravo this summer, according to reports.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo recently indicated that Manchester City were set to bring in Bravo to replace Joe Hart after Pep Guardiola was unconvinced by the Englishman's performances at Euro2016.

However, Barcelona's sporting director Robert Fernandez has made it clear that the Catalan giants will not be allowing Chile international Bravo or his deputy keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen to depart the Camp Nou anytime soon.

"I'll do what it takes to prevent either of [Bravo and Ter Stegen] from leaving this summer," Fernandez told reporters.

"Our stance has not changed one bit since I last said both would continue.

"People speculate too much, but the fact is we have two extraordinary goalkeepers under contract."
