Robert Fernandez plays down Claudio Bravo exit talk

Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez expects both Claudio Bravo and Marc-Andre ter Stegen to remain at Camp Nou this summer.

Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez has said that he is confident both Claudio Bravo and Marc-Andre ter Stegen will remain at Camp Nou in this summer's transfer window.

Both Bravo and Ter Stegen have been linked with Manchester City over the last few weeks, with Pep Guardiola reportedly keen to replace England number one Joe Hart with a new goalkeeper.

It was also claimed earlier this week that Ter Stegen would be promoted to number one stopper for the new season, leaving Bravo as second choice behind the young German.

Fernandez, however, has branded the transfer speculation 'pure fabrication' and sees the two senior goalkeepers remaining with the Spanish champions for the 2016-17 campaign.

"Nothing's changed [with Claudio Bravo]. I've heard many things and there's a lot speculation, but both goalkeepers are extraordinary and fantastic, so this situation has been created. I see them still here next season. They have a contract," Fernandez told reporters.

Joel Matip is currently the number three goalkeeper at Barcelona.
