Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero has revealed that Manchester City wanted to sign him over the summer.

City manager Manuel Pellegrini coached the Argentine shotstopper at the Spanish club before leaving for the Etihad Stadium in June.

"I talked with Manuel Pellegrini before he left Malaga," Caballero is quoted as saying by The Sun.

"I knew of his intention to take me with him to Manchester City, but I was unsure whether he would stick with the same keepers he had already."

Caballero joined Malaga from Elche in 2011.
