Man City announce Carlos Tevez deal

Abu Dhabi-owned Premiership club agrees 5-year contract with Argentine international, subject to medical.

Argentine international striker, Carlos Tevez, has agreed terms with Abu Dhabi-owned Premiership club, Manchester City - the 5-year deal subject to the player passing a medical."It's terrific news," City boss Mark Hughes said in a statement. "He is an international of the highest class who possesses all the attributes to help drive us forward.

"This is yet another deal that shows the commitment of the owner to make this club the very best it can be."

The 25-year old former West Ham and Manchester United forward fell out with his bosses at United after Dimitar Berbatov was brought to Old Trafford from Spurs in a £30 million deal.

In a team that also included at the time strikers Wayne Rooney and Christiano Ronaldo, Tevez concluded he had become surplus to requirements at United.

Tevez, who will wear the number 32 shirt at Eastlands, started 99 league and cup matches for Sir Alex Ferguson's team and scored 34 goals, but decided to leave despite being offered a permanent contract.

Why do you say Abu Dhabi-owned Premiership club, Manchester City, and never refer to Manchester United as Glazer owned or Chelsea as Abramovich owned? Perhaps you secretly object to Man City having such resources , and rather wish they'd sink back to mid table mediocrity. Jealousy is a terrible thing really.

The thing with Tevez is that while he's a good player he is also very ugly. Watching him is like pleasure and pain - pleasure at his footballing skills, pain at having to look at his face.
