Report: Chelsea Set To Sign Willy Caballero As Backup Goalkeeper

share on:

Chelsea are continuing discussions with former Manchester Citygoalkeeper Willy Caballero, according to the Daily Mail.

The 35-year-old is a free agent since leaving City and the paper claims he also has offers in England, Spain and his native Argentina.

Caballero, 35, will fill the gap left by the departure of Asmir Begovic, who wanted first-team football, to Bournemouth earlier this month.

He will serve as backup goalkeeper to Thibaut Courtois for the Premier League champions next season.

Sources said Chelsea were in ongoing talks with Caballero, who rejected a one-year deal to stay at City and had also had offers both from England and clubs in La Liga.

In  May, City confirmed that Caballero would be one of several players — among them Bacary Sagna, Gael Clichy and Jesus Navas — to move on when their deals expired in July.
