Juve-bound Tevez arrives in Turin

Carlos Tevez has arrived in Italy to undergo a medical ahead of his expected move from Manchester City to Juventus.

The Argentinian striker arrived at Milan's Malpensa airport from South America shortly after 1430 BST and was mobbed by around 200 Juve fans ahead of his medical at the club's offices in Turin, which could well begin on Wednesday evening.

The 29-year-old, who will meet Bianconeri coach Antonio Conte, director Giuseppe Marotta and agent Kia Joorabchian, has a positive medical history meaning, providing there are no unforeseen hitches, Tevez will then complete one of the most notable summer transfers on Thursday.

Marotta told La Repubblica Sport: "We are all really excited about this transfer, Tevez really is a major coup."

Reports in Italy suggest the former Manchester United and West Ham striker will sign a three-year contract worth 5.5million euros per season before bonuses - a deal which would make Tevez the Old Lady's best paid player.

Should the agreement go through in the next 24 hours, Tevez will be presented to the press before returning to his family holiday ahead of Juve's departure for pre-season training in Chatillon on July 12.

Tevez could even wear the number 10 jersey made famous by iconic Juve striker Alessandro Del Piero.

Although he has yet to officially start work, new City boss Manuel Pellegrini is known to have authorised the transfer, which could net the Blues £13.5million and will save them up to £27million, including bonuses, from the final year of Tevez's contract.

The move gives City more flexibility to operate in the transfer market, although it has been suggested Pellegrini is happy to offer Edin Dzeko a chance to stake a claim for a regular place.

There had been interest in Napoli's Edinson Cavani, although it is claimed City are not willing to meet the Italian club's £54million valuation.
