Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero wants Spain return

Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero has confirmed he would like to return to Spanish football before he retires from playing.

The Argentine shot-stopper celebrated his 38th birthday in September and he is currently the back-up for Kepa Arrizabalaga at Stamford Bridge.

Caballero has played in Spain across nine seasons between Elche in the second division before joining Malaga in the top-flight in the 2010-11 campaign.

 “Returning to Argentina is not my plan because I feel like I am a European player now,” Caballero said, as cited by Diario AS.

“I would like to return to Spain. Elche or Malaga are options of course, but it's not just a case of what I would want, but that the clubs want you and the circumstances they exist for that to happen.

“Now, I'm a Chelsea player and we wait to see what happens in June. I'm 38 but I feel in good form and perfectly ready to continue to play at a good level for longer.”

The Argentine started his career at Boca Juniors and has subsequently played in England as a back-up goalkeeper at both Manchester City and Chelsea.
