Manchester City is delighted to announce that agreement has been reached with Carlos Tevez over a proposed move to the City of Manchester Stadium.
Personal terms with the 25-year-old have been concluded and the deal has been ratified by the Premier League and the Football Association.
After a medical Carlos, who has won the league title in every country in which he has played, is expected to sign a five-year contract and will meet up with his new teammates on their pre-season tour to South Africa. He will sport the number 32 shirt.
Whilst the transfer had been played out for the best of the past month in the media, due to the complex negotiations of the deal (to satisfy Premier League requirements over third party ownership) it was always likely to take longer to conclude than most transfers.
I'll post more in depth over the next day or so when I get more time, but there is no doubt that this is an excellent signing for us and our strikeforce for 2009/10 in comparison to last year bears no comparison.
