Tevez completes Juventus move

Juventus have completed a £12 million deal to sign Man City striker Carlos Tevez on a three-year contract. The 29-year-old player has moved to the Turin based club in a deal that was reasonably out of the blue but it is thought he wanted away for some time, ever since his little 6 month golfing holiday in Argentina when he should have been earning his huge wage on the football pitch.

He has still played a big part in Manchester City's last couple of seasons, helping them get their first ever Premier League title - when he got back that is! - and scored 11 goals last season to fire City to 2nd in the Prem. 

After the Bayern Munich Champions League match where Tevez had refused to warm-up to come on as a substitute, he was fined £400,000 for breach of his contract and Roberto Mancini publicly said he would never play for the Manchester club again. Tevez was then fined a further £1.2 million for his absence, he appealed but the appeal was dismissed by the board. Mancini then stated that Tevez may play again for Man City and then when he came back from Argentina, he started palying again!

Ever since this incident, the Man City board and fans alike were keen to see Tevez go but that never materialised until Manuel Pellegrini was brought in. Now Juventus, who were linked with Gonzalo Higuan, have attained a new number 10 in Tevez. This deal has benefited Man City a lot though because they are now available to sign a new and better striker and will have cut down their wage bill massively with his £198,000 wages being cut loose and they will save a whopping £17 million on not having to pay his wages no longer.
