Manchester City veteran waiting for assurances after being offered new contract – report

Willy Caballero has been offered a new contract by Manchester City according to an exclusive report by Charlie Wyett, football editor of The Sun.

However, the 35-year-old, who became a cult hero among Blues after his heroics at Wembley in the 2016 League Cup final, is biding his time until he learns whether Pep Guardiola will add a new goalkeeper to the Man City squad this summer.

Chilean shot-stopper Claudio Bravo could yet remain at the club despite a poor first season, which would see Caballero potentially relegated to third choice if a new ‘keeper is also added.

Willy is one of six senior players out of contract, with Pablo Zabaleta and Gael Clichy already confirming their exits and Bacary Sagna expected to follow soon. City want to keep Jesus Navas and Yaya Touré for at least another year, but neither has yet committed to the club, with Navas reportedly getting closer and closer to a Sevilla return.

One goalkeeper who will not be at the club next season is Joe Hart, who is up for sale following his loan spell at Torino. The 30-year-old could actually train with the squad again, however, if he isn’t able to find a new club in the next six weeks before the players return for pre-season training.
