The Argentine impressed last season as Los Boquerones reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League under the Chilean.

And the 31-year-old has confirmed that Pellegrini discussed the prospect of taking his former first-choice with him to the Premier League before Caballero decided to remain in La Liga.

The keeper told The Sun: "I talked with Manuel Pellegrini before he left Malaga. 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, who arrived at La Rosaleda from Elche in 2011, recently agreed a contract extension to stay at Malaga until 2017.
