Manchester City-bound defender Pablo Zabaleta is relishing the chance to ply his trade in the Premier League.
The Argentina international is currently heading to Eastlands for transfer talks after City triggered his release clause with a £6.45million offer for his services.
Zabaleta, who hopes one day to return to Liga outfit Espanyol, is now looking forward to a new challenge after three years in Barcelona.
"I hope that in future I can play against for Espanyol because they are a great club," stated Zabaleta.
"I have been treated very well from the moment I arrived. It has been a pleasure to share three years for a team in which I had great times.
"Everything's happened very fast. Now an opportunity to play in England has arrived and I like this challenge."
