Juve to pay £10m for Tevez

Posted on 26/06/2013 in Serie A

Juventus have agreed a fee with Manchester City for Carlos Tevez.

The striker will now travel to Turin to have a medical and discuss personal terms with the Serie A champions, after officials from the two clubs reportedly reached an initial £10 million agreement.

Tevez joined City from local rivals Manchester United and played a pivotal role in helping them win their first league championship since 1968 – despite spending part of the season on South American golf courses after falling out with then manager Roberto Mancini.  

City managed to delay his departure for another season, but are now looking to move the player on to avoid paying up to £17 million in wages and bonuses this season.

Tevez's exit leaves new manager Manuel Pellegrini with an urgent need to add depth to his attacking line-up, after Mario Balotelli moved to Milan in January.

Reports are linking them with Napoli's hitman Edison Cavani, who is currently on international duty with Uruguay at the Confederations Cup.
