Rulli, who is a product of the Estudiantes youth system in his homeland, has spent the last two seasons on loan at Sociedad from Uruguayan side Deportivo Maldonado and impressed City manager Pep Guardiola with his performances in La Liga.

However despite reports that City could look to replace Joe Hart this summer, it is understood that Guardiola still considers the England goalkeeper as his first choice and is happy for Rulli to continue his development on loan.

Having first broken into the Estudiantes team in 2013, he became a regular the following season before his economic rights were purchased by Maldonado – a second division club in Uruguay – in 2014. Like Jonathan Calleri, a striker who is set to join West Ham on loan from Maldonado in the coming days, Rulli is currently preparing to represent Argentina at the Olympics in Rio.
