City said in a statement: "Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has sustained an Achilles tendon injury in today's training session".

However, the keeper, signed from Barcelona for £15.4m in 2016, did provide manager Pep Guardiola with reliable back-up.

According to Jack Gaughan of the Daily Mail, City are putting some thought into recalling 19-year-old Aro Muric from NAC Breda, less than a month after he was sent to the Dutch partner club for his first senior experience in the game.

Bravo himself has attempted to put on a courageous face over the matter.

Bravo tweeted: 'No matter how bad it looks today, life goes on, and tomorrow will certainly be better'.

Bravo's injury leaves City reliant on 20-year-old Daniel Grimshaw to act as deputy to first choice Ederson. The Belgian is out for three months with knee ligament damage. City however are looking for a goalkeeper to replace Bravo on an emergency loan although the transfer window in closed.

England Under-21s global Angus Gunn was sold to Southampton in the summer and another goalkeeper, 19-year-old Montenegrin Arijanet Muric, has been loaned out to Dutch side NAC Breda.

Bravo, who joined the club two seasons ago from Barcelona, will fly to Barcelona for further tests on Thursday.

Scans confirmed the severity of the injury and the Chile global will fly to Barcelona on Thursday to undergo further tests.
