City get Willy

Quote:
Manchester City have signed Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

The Argentine, 32, joined on a three-year deal for a fee believed to be in the region of Ł6m excluding add-ons.

Caballero, who played under City boss Manuel Pellegrini at Spanish side Malaga, was in Manchester on Monday morning to finalise the deal.

He becomes the champions' third signing of the summer after the arrivals of midfielder Fernando from Porto and former Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna.

Caballero is expected to provide back-up and competition for England number one Joe Hart.
Story

He's obviously worked with Pellegrini before, so I'll trust his judgement. Be interesting to see how Joe Hart responds, because this is definitely a top class challenger. Would've liked to see us bring a home grown keeper in, but the reality is that you're never going to find one as good as Willy for Ł6m (or any price, tbf).

It's not a punmaker's dream really.

"Hand off my Willy! - Malaga boss warns City off star keeper", for example.

Has it bollocks.

Not sure Arsenal fans are qualified to talk about keepers considering they think Chesney is a top class keeper.

It probably would have if he made a mistake that cost us a game in the WC.

Anyway, I doubt Willy will make Joe have a sore bum just yet.

top class goalkeeper judging from his La Liga displays and unlucky (or rather, bizarrely) to not have been in the Argentina squad.

Hart better be on top of his game during the season or he might not get his place back.

Willy be a starter?

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

Thought he looked a bit stiff for the first two goals yesterday.
