Carlos Tevez is expected to complete a £13.5million move to Juventus later this week.

Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain met with his Juventus counterparts today and after an agreement from new boss Manuel Pellegrini, it was decided Tevez should be allowed to end his controversial four-year stay at the Etihad Stadium.

The player will undergo a medical tomorrow, with personal terms also still to be agreed.

Although Juventus will only be paying an initial nine million euros, a further six could be payable if various clauses are met over the course of what it is understood will be a three-year contract.

Indeed, Tevez's status as one of City's highest earners means that the deal in total is worth £27million, even though the South American only had a year remaining on his contract.
