Manchester City to complete signing of Tevez next week

Posted By: Staff

London, July 11 (ANI): Manchester City will complete the signing of Carlos Tevez before going on their pre-season tour of South Africa on Wednesday.

The Argentinean hitman, 25, has finished his holidays and is now committed to the move across town from Old Trafford after becoming a free agent.

City are just clearing up the red tape surrounding the third-party ownership of a player which, Premier League chiefs insist, must come to an end.

The club will pay owner Kia Joorabchian 26.5 million pounds to sever ties so the player will become City's property, The Sun reports.

He had previously been on a two-year six million pound loan to Manchester United, but the Red Devils dragged their feet on making him a permanent signing.

Tevez has since criticised boss Alex Ferguson for leaving him out of many big games.

Tevez will join fellow new signings Roque Santa Cruz and Gareth Barry at Eastlands. (ANI)
