Carlos Tevez is set to complete his £25m move to Manchester City after returning from holiday. The Argentine is expected to undergo a medical at Eastlands on Monday and seal a protracted move after his loan spell at Manchester United.
According to the Daily Mail, the striker is hoping to join City’s tour of South Africa, which departs on Wednesday, with a five-year contract worth £150,000 a week agreed and he is believed to have turned down offers from Chelsea and Liverpool.
After spending an unhappy spell on the bench at Old Trafford, Tevez is reported to favour a move to a club with more chances of first-team action; while Mark Hughes has been able to persuade the 25-year-old of the long term ambition of the club.
