The ongoing transfer saga of Carlos Tevez has finally reached a conclusion as the Argentinian striker sealed a switch to City in a deal worth £25 million.
Tevez, 25, has reportedly signed a five-year deal to move across from Stretford to Eastlands and will join up with City for their pre-season tour in South Africa. Manager Mark Hughes is delighted the saga had been resolved and tipped Tevez for the top.
"I cannot wait to welcome him to City. He is not only outstanding technically but he is a reliable goalscorer and someone who will contribute fully to the team ethic. He gives us another exciting attacking dimension."
Tevez will face his former team-mates in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford on September 19th.
