Martin Demichelis: Has joined Manchester City

32-year-old Demichelis, who has been capped 37 times by Argentina, has penned a two-year deal with City and is reunited with Manuel Pellegrini who was his manager at both River Plate and Malaga.

Demichelis told City's website: "I am delighted to have joined City because I am still hungry for success and want to improve.

"I have been in Europe for 11 years now and this was a great chance for me to play in the Premier League with such a big club.

"I have lived in Europe for many years and I don't think there'll be any problems in adjusting to life here.

"Now I want to repay the manager's faith in me out on the pitch. I can't wait to get started."

Demichelis only left Malaga for Atletico Madrid in July and now moves swiftly on to Manchester for a reported £3.5million.

He also spent seven years with Bayern Munich where he won four Bundesliga titles and four German cup medals.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
