Juventus have agreed a deal to take Argentina international striker Carlos Tevez from Manchester City.
The deal is believed to be worth £10 million up front, rising depending on appearances. Tevez will now travel to Italy to complete his medical and agree personal terms.
The 29-year-old scored an impressive 74 goals in 148 appearances following his £47 million move from rivals Manchester United in 2009 but has since felt unsettled at the club and has been seeking a move.
Tevez has been no stranger to controversy during his career, with reports of ‘tantrums’ and refusing to play from Corinthians, West Ham and Manchester City. During his exile from the City squad, probably the most noteable transgression, he said manager Roberto Mancini ‘treated him like a dog’ in an interview with Argentinian media.
Juventus, however, will be more interested in his undeniable ability as they aim to retain the Serie A title next season as well as improve on their Quarter-Final exit from last year’s Champions League.
