Carlos Tevez to join Manchester CityCarlos Tevez to join Manchester City agreed to a contract for five years, another important signing of the team that is determined to appear in the Premier League.

Artillero The Argentine, 25, completed his medical examinations with moving across Manchester to make the most illustrious resident of another city, Manchester United, where he played on loan.

With its last league trophy which dates from 1968, Man City has been an attractive destination of great players since he was acquired in September by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Abu Dhabi royal family.

Tevez in the attack will be combined with Brazil's Robinho, who came to the team in September with a record figure of 42.5 million British pounds (then U.S. $ 61.7 million) and the Paraguayan Roque Santa Cruz, which was integrated last month from Blackburn.

It is a great news, said the technician's Man City, Mark Hughes, the team's website. Carlos is a player of the highest international level that has all the attributes that drive this club forward.

Not only is unique in the art, but is a reliable scorer and someone who will contribute fully to the team ethic. We will provide another exciting dimension to the attack.

Tevez gave United the last month with the expiry of the loan in two years with the English champion and rejected by United's interest in hiring a permanent basis. Tevez said he had the impression that the coach Alex Ferguson lacked respect with little playing time.

Ardo wishes to welcome you to the City, said Hughes.

In remarks hours before known, Ferguson said that Tevez ignored their phone calls and text messages in which they tried to persuade him to remain at the club.

Ferguson said he made several attempts to keep Tevez before the expiry of his loan.

I almost hoped that Carlos Tevez will be a long time, Ferguson said in his first public statements about the case since Tevez refused to follow United. I think that perhaps reached an agreement about January because I spoke with him the night I made an offer to play against Inter Milan (March) and I never responded.

I called him by phone on holiday and never told me, I sent two text messages and also I never replied, so I obviously already had plans for a long time. It was a good player and worked well for us. But obviously, assessed the situation and wanted to go elsewhere, he said.

The champion of the Premier League was willing to pay 25.5 million pounds (41 million U.S. dollars) to sign Tevez on a permanent agreement, but the striker decided instead to play with the rival countryman.
