Chelsea have announced the signing of former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a one-year contract, the club have announced on the official website.
Cabellero began his career in his home nation Argentina, where he made 19 appearances across a four year stint with Boca Juniors.
He was handed his first opportunity in Europe by Elche in 2004, where he fast established himself as the Spanish outfit’s number one keeper, and subsequently made 195 appearances, the most he has made at any club in his illustrious career.
In the winter of 2011, Cabellero joined Malaga, where he continued to showcase his talent as one of the best goalkeepers in La Liga – it earned him a move to the Etihad, where former boss Manuel Pellegrini gave the stopper his first taste of English football.

“I am very happy to join Chelsea, the champions of England. I am looking forward to meeting the guys and helping the club achieve more success in the coming season.”
