Manchester City have announced they have reached an agreement to sign Argentinian striker Carlos Tevez in a reported £25million deal.
The 25-year-old, who left city rivals United at the end of last season, has agreed personal terms and is expected to pen a five-year deal at Eastlands.
City have confirmed the deal has been ratified by the Premier League and the Football Association, and Tevez is expected to have a medical shortly before meeting up with his new team-mates on their pre-season tour to South Africa.
Manager Mark Hughes told the club’s official website: “It is terrific news. Carlos is an international player of the highest class who possesses all the attributes that will help drive this club forward.”
