Manchester City have confirmed Ferran Soriano as their new chief executive.

Soriano fills the vacancy created by the departure of Garry Cook last season and takes up his position on September 1. He comes with an impressive CV, having been credited with transforming the off-field fortunes of Barcelona.

"I am delighted to take up the position of chief executive officer of Manchester City Football Club," he told "The vision of the owner together with his commitment, and that of the chairman and board, make this opportunity absolutely compelling."
