Tevez set for Juve unveiling

first_img 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. Reports in Italy suggest the former Manchester United and West Ham striker’s contract with Juventus will earn him £4.7million per season before bonuses. 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. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
