Man City keeper Caballero caught up in Spanish match-fixing report

Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero is embroiled in Spain's match-fixing scandal.

The Mail on Sunday says Caballero was offered money by match-fixers to throw a game earlier this year, according to reports in Spain.

The alleged approach, which Caballero immediately reported to the authorities after declining any involvement, happened when the 33-year-old Argentine was playing for Malaga.

Spanish newspaper El Pais said the fixture in question was Malaga's home match against relegation-threatened Elche on May 3. Elche won the match 1-0 and ended the season safe.

Elche and Malaga have both denied any involvement in fixing.
