Argentine defender Martin Demichelis is set to sign for La Liga outfit Espanyol, various reports in Spain have suggested.
The 35-year-old was released by Manchester City at the end of last season and he now looks set to return to Spanish La Liga.
Marca, Sport and Cadena COPE are reporting that Espanyol have all but reached an agreement with the experienced centre-back and they could announce the deal by the end of the day.
Martin Demichelis enjoyed two and a half very successful seasons with Malaga before joining Atletico Madrid on a free transfer in July 2013.
Oddly enough, he was sold to Manchester City just a month and a half later, failing to play a single game for los Colchoneros.
The player’s career in England was riddled with costly mistakes, but he did well to amass 78 Premier League appearances during three years at Etihad Stadium.
