Claudio Bravo is still out of court. The Chilean goalkeeper is currently overcoming a soleus injury that has left him unable to play minutes at Betis, although he has already done so train normally. But what was already a big worry for Manuel Pellegrini became a horror with the loss of the green and white team’s other goalkeeper. Rui Silva due to discomfort in the left adductor area.
Alarm bells were ringing in the Sevilla squad. For this reason, there has been talk of a new addition to the line-up led by the engineer, and there is one name that sounds strong: David De Gea.
The former Spanish national team and former Manchester United goalkeeper has been without a club since June 2023 and, according to Fichajes.net, could be the bomb that Real Betis is waiting for to be able to compete in both the local tournament and the Europa League.
“Betis’ need for a good goalkeeper is obvious and they cannot afford to wait until the January transfer window,” reads the transfer specialist’s site, also highlighting the huge opportunity to “get a player of De Gea’s quality for free to oblige.”
Claudio Bravo, 40 years old, was unable to recover well from his soleus injury, which was supposed to go away quickly. Two weeks had been predicted for the Chilean’s return, but now it has been almost a month. However, Betis assures that he will be back for the Europa League clash against Glasgow Rangers. Does the Chilean goalkeeper have little time left in Europe?
When was Claudio Bravo’s last game?
The former La Roja captain has not played a league game since June 4, 2023, the final matchday of the last La Liga season, when Betis drew 1-1 with Valencia.
How old is Claudio Bravo?
Claudio Bravo is 40 years old. He was born on April 13, 1983. The Chilean will play for Betis until he turns 41 before considering his future again. There are currently no signs that he will be able to play in Colo Colo again at this age, so that option is becoming more and more distant.
