Carlos Tevez is set to complete his £25m move to Manchester City later today.
The Argentinian striker is expected to undergo a medical at Eastlands on Monday and seal a protracted move after his loan spell at Manchester United.
The striker is hoping to join City’s tour of South Africa, which leaves on Wednesday, with a five-year contract worth £150,000 a week agreed and he is understood to have turned down offers from Chelsea and Liverpool.
Tevez is City’s third big-name signing of the summer, following the earlier arrivals of Gareth Barry from Aston Villa and Roque Santa Cruz from Blackburn.
Although a move for Barcelona’s Samuel Eto’o has apparently fallen through, Sport report that City may now turn their attention to Luis Fabiano from Sevilla.
Fabiano, who is closing on a move to Milan, has hinted through his agent that he would only consider a move to the Rossoneri, although may be tempted by the wage packet on offer at Eastlands.
