Caballero completes Manchester City move

Manchester, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Manchester City announced Tuesday that the club has signed Willy Caballero from Malaga.

The signing sees the 32-year-old goalkeeper reunite with manager Manuel Pellegrini following a spell at Malaga that saw the duo lead the Spanish side to a fourth-place finish in La Liga and a quarterfinal appearance in the Champions League.

"I am very happy and really looking forward to the start of pre-season and performing well to help the team," Caballero told City's official website. "This is a new challenge and a new league for me. I have been doing well in previous years and my goal is to go on and hopefully perform at the same level for City."

Caballero arrives at City to provide competition for first-choice goalkeeper Joe Hart. The Argentine replaces Costel Pantilimon, who was released by the Premier League champions at the conclusion of last season.
