CARLOS TEVEZ will complete a £13.5million move to Juventus later this week.

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

The player is due to undergo a medical, with personal terms to be agreed.

Although Juventus will only be paying an initial €9 million, a further €6m could be payable if various clauses are met over the course of a three-year contract.

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.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have signed Belgium goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from fellow Premier League side Sunderland.
