The Argentinian had a medical on Monday and the Premier League champions are poised to unveil him as their third signing of the summer.

And the highly-rated Caballero, who is likely to cost around £6m, is seen as having the ability to act as a genuine rival to Joe Hart for the goalkeeper’s jersey at City.

The 32-year-old Caballero was an Olympic gold medal-winner in 2004 with Argentina and impressed during his spell at Malaga, where he played under City boss Manuel Pellegrini.

The new man will replace Costel Pantilimon, who has left for Sunderland, in the City squad.

Pantilimon usurped Hart as City’s Premier League goalkeeper for a brief period last autumn but primarily acted as an understudy to the England man.

City have already signed full-back Bacary Sagna and midfielder Fernando this summer, as they prepare for the defence of their crown.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.

Sterling Case For Leaving 'Bigger' Club

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
