Less than a week after Real Sociedad sealed a permanent deal for the shot-stopper, the Citizens are reportedly willing to buy him back

Claudio Bravo's woes at Manchester City have led Pep Guardiola to turn his gaze on Real Sociedad goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli, according to Mundo Deportivo

The Chilean has failed to impress since moving from Barcelona at the start of the 2016-17 season, with a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Everton only heightening pressure on both Bravo and Guardiola.

And with Joe Hart on loan at Torino and Willy Caballero almost out of contract, the 24-year-old ex-City shot-stopper has emerged as a top target. 

Rulli moved to the Etihad Stadium in January 2016 but never played a game for City - but he would be available for €14 million on a buyback deal should Real decide to sell.
