Veteran goalkeeper Willy Caballero has agreed a new one-year contract extension at Stamford Bridge according to reports on Chelsea’s official website.
The 38-year-old Argentine stopper has spent the last three years with The Blues and was set to become a free agent on 30 June.
It has now been revealed that Caballero will remain at The Bridge for another year with his new deal set to take him to within three months of his 40th birthday.
Following a three-year spell with Chelsea’s Premier League rivals Manchester City, Caballero moved to Stamford Bridge in summer 2017 on a free transfer. The player has gone on to make 31 appearances for the South West Londoners in all competitions. The keeper has lifted both the Emirates FA Cup and UEFA Europa League trophy during his time as a Chelsea player.
Caballero started his career in his homeland with Boca Juniors before going on to enjoy six successful years playing in the Spanish Segunda Division with Elche. In 2011, the keeper moved into the Spanish top flight where he represented Malaga before joining Manchester City in 2014.
At the age of 36, Caballero made his senior international debut for Argentina, a reward for the reliability shown by the player during his time in the Premier League.
