Caballero, 35, moved to England in the summer of 2014 from Malaga and made 26 appearances for City under Pep Guardiola last season.

He will serve as back-up to Thibaut Courtois at Chelsea, who sold second-choice keeper Asmir Begovic to Bournemouth in May.

“I am very happy to join Chelsea, the champions of England. I am looking forward to meeting the guys and helping the club achieve more success in the coming season,” Caballero told the club’s website.
