Premier League - Clichy completes City move
Clichy completed his medical early on Monday and spent the afternoon meeting with club officials to seal his move north from Arsenal and become Roberto Mancini's first summer signing.
Although Arsene Wenger was keen to keep his fellow Frenchman, with Clichy about to enter the final year of his contract, having indicated he was not willing to agree an extension, Arsenal had little option but to cash in.
Clichy has signed a four-year contract and becomes the latest in a succession of former Arsenal players to join the City revolution, although as that number includes Emmanuel Adebayor and the currently suspended Kolo Toure, the Blues have not had unqualified success with their raids on London.
"I am really happy to be joining such a great club," Clichy told the club's website.
"I hope I can add to the quality we already have here because we have a fantastic squad who I believe will continue to get better. I can't wait to get started and I think anything is possible with this team."
