Manchester City have completed the signing of Eibar goalkeeper Asier Riesgo and the move will probably announced in the coming days, say reports in Spain.
The 35-year-old will sign one year deal at the English champions and can become as goalkeeping coach at the English club’s academy when he retires next summer.
A long-term injury to Manchester City stand in goalkeeper Claudio Bravo last season has forced Arijanet Muric to return early from his loan spell at NAC Breda. However, City lined up a shock move for shot-stopper Asier Riesgo as it would allow Aro Muric to go back out on loan again, with Nottingham Forest interested in a season-long deal.
Asier Riesgo, available for free is seen as perfect keeper to come in and would be regarded as third option, providing back-up option to Ederson along with fit-again Claudio Bravo.
The veteran has worked with current City goalkeeping coach Xavier Mancisidor at Real Sociedad.
Riesgo, who will turn 36 years of age in October has made 185 career LaLiga appearances, will reportedly see earning double what he was taking home at Eibar.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian defender Oleksandr Zinchenko has officially signed a new three-year contract extension with Manchester City which will keep him at the club until 2024.
