Chelsea Football Club have today officially announced the signing of goalkeeper Willy Caballero following his release from Manchester City.The 35-year-old’s contract with Manchester City expired at midnight last night and he was thus finally free to sign with the Premier League champions.Have you read Trendiee Today?”I am very happy to join the champions of England”, Caballero told official Chelsea website. “I am looking forward to meeting the guys and helping the club achieve more success in the coming season”.Caballero will now provide competition for Chelsea’s first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois after his previous understudy Asmir Begovic was sold to Bournemouth for £10m earlier this summer.Technical director Michael Emenalo added: “We are very happy to have Willy on board”.Caballero becomes Chelsea’s first senior signing of what is expected to be a busy summer of spending.While Caballero will be a backup at his new club, his experience and talent will be crucial to Chelsea as they return to fighting on all four fronts this season. In fact, Caballero started nearly half of City’s games (16 of 38 in the league) as not even Pep Guardiola could ignore Bravo’s high profile gaffes after a while.Caballero spent three seasons at Manchester City, performing heroics in the League Cup final in 2016, saving three penalties against Liverpool to secure the trophy for his side.
