Late last night it was confirmed that Manchester City and Juventus had agreed a deal for Argentine forward Carlos Tevez. The Italian side saw their £10m (with £2m add-ons) offer accepted by the former Premier League champions.
Tevez is expected in Italy on Wednesday where he will undergo a medical and discuss personal terms with the Italian champions. The proposed contract will last for three years.
It is believed that the two clubs reached an agreement during a meeting held in London on Tuesday.
The £12m fee is squashed by the £25.5m Manchester City paid Tevez's advisors in 2009. However there is some financial benefits for City - the transfer fee they are due to recieve plus the wages and bonuses City would have paid Tevez, the club could save £27m.
The switch will come as a shock to many City fans and footballing people as there was little sign that the ex-Manchester United player was on his way out. But the move could be seen as a way of City freeing up space in their overcrowded forward line.
Manchester City will now search for a replacemet, with Napoli striker Edison Cavani set as their number one target.
