Man City & Juventus agree £12m Tevez deal

Italian giants Juventus have agreed the transfer of Argentine striker Carlos Tevez from Manchester City, for a reported fee of £12m. The move makes room in City's star-studded forward for target Edison Cavani.

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.
