Girona to sign former Man City striker Caicedo

Girona are set to sign former Manchester City striker Felipe Caicedo, according to reports.

Following their return to La Liga, the Catalan club, now linked with Man City, have already begun recruiting for the new season.

And, it is understood by reports in Spanish daily Marca, that 28-year-old Caicedo is set to arrive from Espanyol.

The 28-year-old found playing time hard to come by last season and has been pushing for a summer exit after the permanent signing of Leo Baptistao from Atletico Madrid.

A deal is said to be hours away from completion and is fairly simple, with Caicedo already living in Barcelona, a short drive away from Girona.


Caicedo had spells with Man City, Malaga, Sporting Lisbon, Basel, Lokomotiv Moscow and Levante before joining Espanyol.

The Ecuadorian is expected to be joined by four Man City players in Douglas Luiz, Aleix Garcia, Marlos Moreno and Pablo Maffeo, who are all set to arrive on one-year loan deals – which is part of a partnership agreement between the two clubs.

The move comes after City Football Group (CFG) agreed a partnership with Girona, who now join MLS side New York City, A-League side Melbourne City and Japanese outfit Yokohama F. Marinos – as satellite clubs.
