Manchester City star close to Juventus move
Juventus & Manchester City agree £10m fee for Carlos Tevez
Juventus have agreed a transfer fee suspected to be in the region of £10million for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, reports SkySports.
It has been widely reported that Juventus are in the market for a new striker and they had been linked with Tevez throughout the season.
Tevez has been a great goalscorer throughout his career and has won a number of trophies since coming to England.
Tevez made an extremely controversial move to West Ham in 2006 and made the switch to Manchester United soon after his arrival.
Tevez scored 19 goals in 63 appearances for United helping them to League Cup, Community Shield, Club World Cup, Champions League and two Premier League victories.
Tevez became frustrated at the end of his Manchester United career after the Red Devils were slow to offer him a contract extension.
This led to Tevez moving across Manchester to title rivals Manchester City.
Tevez was one of the leaders of the Manchester City revolution, helping them in the transition from mid-table team to challenging for titles.
He scored 58 times in 107 games at City and helped them to victory in the Community Shield, FA Cup and their first ever Premier League trophy.
Tevez had his problems at Manchester City, including an unauthorised spell away from the club in Argentina following a touchline dispute with manager Roberto Mancini during a Champions League tie against Bayern Munich.
Tevez had refused to go onto the pitch as a substitute, saying that he disagreed with the manager’s tactics. The issue was resolved and Tevez did return to City.
Juventus’ interest in Tevez was heightened since Arsenal became the front runners in the race to sign Gonzalo Higuain and they believe that Tevez is a big name who can produce international interest in the club and can help the club to continue their Serie A dominance.
