Pep Guardiola already showing his ruthlessness as he makes a move for Joe Hart's replacement Newsdesk Newsdesk

It has been a bad week for Joe Hart.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola surprised a lot of people by revealing in his pre-match press conference that he was considering replacing Hart in the team for his first Premier League clash.

WATCH - This may explain why Pep Guardiola dropped Joe Hart at Manchester City 

Willy Caballero got the nod in goal for the 2-1 win over Sunderland, but it appears now that Guardiola is seeking a permanent replacement for the England international.

Sport and Sky Sports are reporting that Man City have had a bid accepted for Barcelona shot-stopper Claudio Bravo, believed to be in the region of £17m.

However, Barca's other 'keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has recently picked up an injury so the transfer may be put on hold until the Spanish champions can sign a replacement.

Regardless, the signing would almost certainly spell the end of Hart's time at Manchester City, where he has won two Premier League titles.

He made his Manchester City debut back in 2006 and has won 63 caps for England.
