Carlos Tevez completes £10m move from Manchester City to Juventus

Carlos Tevez has signed a three-year deal to join Juventus from Manchester City.

Tevez travelled to Italy on Wednesday to undergo a medical and agree personal terms before penning a three-year deal, which will see him play for the Turin club until June 2016.

Although the transfer fee has not been disclosed, it is believed that Juventus have paid £10million for the striker, which could rise to £12million with add-ons.

“From now on, Carlos Tevez is a Juventus player,” read a statement on

“The Argentine striker, who arrived in Turin in the afternoon, has reached an agreement with Juventus to sign a contract of employment until 30 June 2016.”

Tevez made 148 appearances for City, scoring 74 goals, but his time at the Etihad was not without controversy, most notably his suspension for an incident in a Champions League match against Bayern Munich in 2011.

A statement on the City website confirmed his departure.
“Carlos Tevez has signed for Juventus, bringing an end to his four-year stay at the Club,” the club said.

“After 148 appearances and 73 goals for City, Tevez has agreed a three-year deal with the reigning Serie A champions.

“During that time, Tevez captained City to the 2011 FA Cup triumph and scored some vital goals in the latter part of the 2011/12 season to help the Club lift the Premier League title.

“Everyone at Manchester City wishes Carlos the best of luck in Italy and thanks him for his important contributions.”
