City have signed Argentinian goalkeeper Willy Caballero to compete with Joe Hart for the number 1 shirt.
The 32-year-old has signed a 3 year deal and is well known by Pellegrini as Caballero played for Malaga. As a fellow Argentinian, Willy will fit in fast with the other’s already on the books at the club.
Caballero exclusively told mcfc.co.uk: “I am very happy, and really looking forward to the start of pre-season and performing well to help the team.
“This is a new challenge and a new league for me. I have been doing well in the previous years and my goal is to go on and hopefully perform at the same level for City.
“I know I am coming to a big club with a very good goalkeeper. City already have a great goalkeeper in Joe Hart, but I will try and compete for the no.1 spot. I will do my best in the training sessions.”
“As for my new team-mates, I have a very good relationship with Martin Demichelis, but I’ve never met Pablo Zabaleta and Sergio Aguero. It’s something I’m looking forward to. For me it is very good to have people from Argentina in the squad because I think it will be very helpful.
“I spoke to Roque Santa Cruz and Demichelis, and they told me that Manchester is a very beautiful city and very welcoming, so that will be great for my family and I can’t wait to enjoy it.”
