Manchester City’s replacement of Joe Hart with Claudio Bravo has proved unsuccessful and Pep Guardiola is already prepared to replace the veteran goalkeeper in the upcoming summer transfer window, according to reports.

Bravo displayed his talent with Barcelona and supporters at the Etihad anticipated a world-class shot-stopper, but the transition in the Premier League has not turned out the way Guardiola may have desired.

It's still unkown where Bravo may go if he's indeed ready to leave, but the name of Benfica goalkeeper Ederson Moraes has hit the papers once again, making the Brazilian a favorite to stand between City’s sticks next season.

Reports state that Ederson’s current club has placed him on a list of players they wish to sell to gain a record €200 million from transfers this summer. The Portuguese giants value the goalkeeper at €30 million, making him one of the most expensive in his position of all time. Moraes is absolutely worth this fee as he is one of the most highly rated young keepers on the planet.

Pep Guardiola could definitely turn this rumor into reality, granting the wishes of millions of City fans.
