Carlos Tevez will today complete the final stages of his transfer to Juventus after the Italian club on Wednesday night confirmed his arrival from Manchester City.
The 29-year-old striker has agreed a three-year deal until June 30, 2016, ending his seven-year stay in English football.
Details of the transfer fee have not been disclosed, but reports indicate the Turin club have paid an initial £10million, rising to £12million with add-ons.
The Argentina international underwent the first stage of his medical on Wednesday and is scheduled to complete the examinations on Thursday.
He will be formally unveiled by the club in a press conference at Juventus Stadium, beginning at 10.30am UK time.
"From now on, Carlos Tevez is a Juventus player," read a statement on juventus.com last night.
"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."
The statement was accompanied by a picture of Tevez holding the number 10 jersey made famous by iconic Juve striker Alessandro Del Piero.
Tevez arrived at Milan's Malpensa airport from a family holiday in South America on Wednesday afternoon and was mobbed by around 200 Juve fans ahead of his medical at the club's offices in Turin.
