Manchester City have signed Argentinian goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a 3-year deal for a fee of around £6m.

The 32-year-old completed his medical on Monday afternoon, but officially signed for the club from Malaga this morning.

He is the Club’s third signing of the summer, with Fernando and Bacary Sagna also joining City in the past few weeks.

Willy Caballero began his career in his homeland with Boca Juniors, where he won the Argentine Primera League, Copa Libertadores and Intercontinental Cup in 2003.

He moved to Spain in 2004 and spent seven years with Elche, before linking up with Manuel Pellegrini at Malaga.

The stopper entered the club’s record books by going 480 consecutive minutes without conceding, and gained valuable Champions League experience during his time with the La Liga side.
