Manchester City close in on £30m deal for Benfica Goalkeeper

Manchester City are closing in on a £30million deal for Benfica goalkeeper Ederson, if reports emerging in Portugal are to be believed.

City are believed to have already written off Bravo, who is currently number two to Caballero after being involved in a series of poor performances.

Sources in Lisbon have claimed that Manchester City are locked in negotiations with the Portuguese club for the Brazil under-23 keeper.

The reports claim that City boss Pep Guardiola has spoken to Ederson already (after securing permission from Benfica) and that the deal is set to go through this summer.

They claim that the two clubs are already haggling over a price, with Benfica asking for at least £35million for the goal stopper.
