The 37-year-old Chile international spent four seasons in the Premier League after joining Man City from Barcelona in a £17m deal in 2016.
The 37-year-old, who made 26 Premier League appearances for the Citizens during his four-year-long stay in the English top-flight, is prepared to take a pay cut to get more first-team football.
Bravo is keen to reunite with former City boss Manuel Pellegrini after the 66-year-old was named Betis’ head coach late last month. Pellegrini is keen to sign a new goalkeeper after seeing Betis concede the 2nd most goals in the 2019/20 La Liga campaign.
The Man City goalkeeper was one of the first players Pep Guardiola brought to City after his unveiling as the club’s manager in 2016. But after enduring a difficult first season at the Etihad, Bravo spent the next three seasons as a backup to Ederson who arrived at the club in 2017.
Real Madrid are set to recall Martin Odegaard to the side despite the fact that the midfielder is only halfway into his two-year loan spell with Real Sociedad.
ESPN reports that Madrid boss Zidane made the decision to recall Odegaard after seeing his team being dumped out of the Champions League by Manchester City last Friday.
There is a feeling in Los Blancos that the 21-year-old will bring creativity and quality to the side’s central midfield department and compete with the likes of Luka Modric, Tony Kroos, Federico Valverde and Isco for a place in the starting XI.
Odegaard has been a huge success at Sociedad and was one of the major reasons behind the San Sebastian outfit’s push for Champions League places in the first half of the season.
After the Spain international impressed during his season-long loan stay at the Emirates, the Gunners were keen to have him at the club for another season.
Mikel Arteta’s plans of carrying out a major squad overhaul at Arsenal might be in tatters after it emerged that Real Madrid have decided against extending Dani Ceballos’ loan stay at the Emirates.
The 24-year-old’s performances during his initial loan spell at Arsenal impressed the North London outfit who wanted Madrid to extend his stay in London by another year.
They were hopeful that with Madrid’s midfield already packed with options – as Zinedine Zidane’s side already have Modric, Kroos, Isco, and Valverde, Los Blancos would agree to either extending Ceballos’ loan stay or selling him permanently.
However, AS now reports that Madrid have altered their stance on Ceballos and see the Spaniard as a playmaker who could make a significant impact at Santiago Bernabeu next season.
