July 20, 2006

Former Italy striker Bernardo Corradi has completed his move to Manchester City from Valencia for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old, who scored 10 Serie A goals last term while on loan at Parma, has penned a three-year contract at Eastlands and becomes manager Stuart Pearce's fifth summer signing.

Pearce told official the club's website: 'I'm delighted to have secured Bernardo, he is a player I've been looking at for some time and think he will be a terrific acquisition for this football club.'

Corradi said: 'I hope to bring all my enthusiasm to Manchester City and I want to show everyone I want to work hard now and during the season with my team-mates. I want to do well here.

'I hope to have the possibility to work well with my team. As I striker I will work hard and help the team to make a lot of goals.

'At the end the important thing is the team - and by working together as one the team will end in a good position.'
