Chile and Manchester City player Claudio Bravo has spoken about the failed transfer of Alexis Sanchez, who of course plays worldwide football alongside him.

Coming off the Sky Blues' spectacular 5-0 thumping of Liverpool at the weekend, the former Barcelona man claimed that Sanchez really wanted to move to Manchester City, validating reports that he didn't go because someone (Raheem Sterling) didn't go in the opposite direction.

City hope Ederson has not suffered a serious injury, but Pep Guardiola said he may miss Wednesday's Champions League game at Feyenoord with Bravo set to step in.

"The transfer didn't happen because a player didn't go to Arsenal and everything collapsed.

Zero chance. Not one percent chance" to take a swap deal with Alexis because I have a lot of trust in Raz. "Us goalkeepers know this can happen but you never expect it", Bravo said.

With Sanchez out of contract at the end of this season, it has been speculated City could return with a reduced bid for the forward in January with Guardiola not ruling out a move. "I am when the transfer window is open, but when the window closes, it's over for me and I'm it thinking about January or the end of the season".

"If there is any negativity or you think that he's giving anything less than 100%, the players will sniff it and they will wean that guy out".

"But we have other players that can play in that position".

Ferdinand, who played for Manchester United from 2002 to 2014, says all these players can still be welcomed back by their teammates, but it depends on their professionalism.
