It looks like Tevez’s much rumored transfer to Manchester City might be finalized in the next few days.
Carlos Tevez poised to agree four-year Manchester City deal by Monday
By David McDonnell 2/07/2009
Manchester City are confident of unveiling Carlos Tevez by Monday in a deal taking Mark Hughes’ spending to £200million since he became boss.
City’s talks with Tevez and his advisers have led to a £25m deal being agreed to take the former United striker across Manchester.
Argentina international Tevez is poised to agree personal terms with City on a four-year deal that will earn the 25-year-old striker £120,000 a week.
With their attempts to sign Barcelona forward Samuel Eto’o hampered by a dispute between the player and his club over an exit fee, City want to sign Tevez as quickly as possible.
Hughes is keen to have as many of his summer signings on board by the time City head to South Africa for their pre-season tour in a fortnight.
Tevez and his main adviser, Kia Joorabchian, have been impressed with City’s pitch for him – and also the club’s ambitious plans to become a major force in Europe.
