Real Sociedad have asked Barcelona for Cristian Tello for a year in exchange for goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, according to reports in Spain.
Mundo Deportivo claims that Bravo is wanted by Barca as experienced cover for Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, the goalkeeper singed to replace Victor Valdes.
But Jose Pinto is also expected to leave Camp Nou and Barca’s search for a No.2 has taken them to the Chile international.
Bravo has a €30m release clause in his contract, which Barca don’t want to meet, and could allow Tello to go to Anoeta for a year as part-exchange.
Tello has offers from the Premier League, however, and may prefer a move to England rather than a season in San Sebastian.
