Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has brushed aside speculation linking goalkeeper Claudio Bravo with a possible move to Manchester City.

Chile international Bravo has been touted as a potential replacement for Joe Hart at the Etihad after new City coach Pep Guardiola dropped the England number one for Saturday's Premier League opener against Sunderland.

Media reports suggest a deal has already been struck for the 33-year-old to join City, but Luis Enrique - like his compatriot Guardiola did on Monday night - was giving nothing away at his press conference ahead of tonight's Spanish Supercup second leg against Sevilla.

The Barca boss said: "I understand the rumour mill is attractive but I don't want to and mustn't get involved in all that. What interests me is the final of the Supercup, gaining a title which is attractive for us."

However, when asked about the possibility of further changes being made to the Barca squad before the transfer deadline, Luis Enrique said: "I think, though I could be wrong, that some players are going to come in and I think that also some are going to leave."
