Manchester City have officially completed the signing of Argentina forward Carlos Tevez.

Tevez, who left rivals Manchester United at the end of last season, signed what is thought to be a five-year deal after flying in for a medical on Tuesday, becoming the latest in a line of high-profile acquisitions by the wealthy Eastlands club.

Speculation suggests the Argentina international could yet be joined by Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor and Chelsea captain John Terry.

Tevez was presented to the media ahead of the Blues' three-match tour of South Africa, which they depart for on Wednesday.

The striker claimed at the press conference that Sir Alex Ferguson did not communicate with him during his time at Manchester United.

The Argentina striker spent two years on loan at Old Trafford before deciding to make the short move to Eastlands after months of uncertainty about his position in the Red Devils pecking order.

Speaking through an interpreter, Tevez said: "I was there for two years and Sir Alex never called or sent any text messages in that time.

"The only time he talked to me was after a match against Roma to discuss a situation about going to play for Argentina.

"It doesn't seem that this is the way to treat a player in two years at the club. it doesn't seem there is a line of communication."
