Serie A giants Juventus have completed the signing of Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez on a three-year-deal, which will see him stay at the Turin outfit until the end of the 2016/17 season.
Tevez travelled to Italy for talks on Wednesday afternoon, and was greeted by a mass of Italian press and journalists.
Juventus and Manchester City have agreed a fee of around £10m for the striker, who makes the move to Italy after four seasons with Manchester City.
Prior to joining the Blues, Tevez played for Boca Juniors, Corinthians, West Ham United and Manchester United. Tevez made 63 appearances for United, before making the move to arch-rivals Manchester City.
He spent four seasons at City, making 107 appearances, scoring 58 goals. He became well-liked amongst the City supporters, despite having played for arch-rivals United. He formed a strong partnership with fellow Argentine Sergio Aguero whilst at the Etihad Stadium, with the pair linking well in the heart of the City attack.
The 29-year-old has completed his medical at Juventus and is ready to begin preparing for the Italian pre-season with the rest of his new team-mates. It had originally been AC Milan who were most interested in signing the striker, but Tevez chose Juventus instead and they won the race to his signature.
Juventus will hope that the addition of Tevez will enable them to retain the Serie A title, which they won this season.
The Turin-based club will also hope to that Tevez can send them to Champions League glory, which they automatically qualify for, because of their title victory.
