Carlos Tevez nears Man City exit as Juventus finalize transfer deal
Manchester City’s wantaway forward Carlos Tevez is finally moving towards ending his turbulent stay in England. The Argentinean hit-man is close to confirming a transfer move to Serie A champions Juventus. The Italian club is expected to announce the deal before the end of the week.
Carlos Tevez has only one year left on his contract with Manchester City, which is why the English club is keen on selling him out instead of losing him for free next season. The 29-year-old Argentina international is also keen to make the move since he has grown fed up of his life at Manchester City.
Juventus are expected to pay £13.5 million in transfer fees to Manchester City for the services of Carlos Tevez. Juventus are expected to pay €9 million in transfer fees, but a further €3 million will be sent to the English club if Juventus are able to qualify for the Champions League in the following three years.
The deal would finally bring an end to Carlos Tevez’s four-year stay at Manchester City. The former West Ham and Manchester United forward is rumored to undergo his medical tests at Turin on Wednesday. Carlos Tevez is taking a pay-cut to make this deal happen. The striker’s pay will scale down from a massive £10 million a year to £7.5 million.
Carlos Tevez has reportedly been offered a three-year deal by Juventus, which means the striker could spend the next two years at the club in peace. On the other hand, Manchester City will be finally able to cut down on their hefty wage bill.
The English club has already spent over £45 million on Jesus Navaz and Fernandinho this summer. Manchester City are expected to make a couple of more signings as well. It is believed Edin Dzeko will be sold out at a cut-price in the following days as well.
Carlos Tevez’s spell at Manchester City can be highlighted with him winning the Premier League and the FA Cup; as well as refusing to play against Bayern Munich in the Champions League and fighting with the club’s former manager Roberto Mancini.
