Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has completed his £12m switch to Italian champions Juventus.

City and Juventus have agreed to a £10 million deal that could rise by £2 million with add-ons, on Tuesday at a meeting in London.

When the fee is combined with salaries and bonuses due to Tevez in the final year of his contract, City could save about £27m.

The former Boca Juniors striker arrived in Italy on Wednesday for medical and signed a three-year contract.

Hundreds of Juventus fans turned up at Milan’s Malpensa airport to welcome the 29-year-old striker.

Juve announced his arrival with a picture of him alongside club president Andrea Agnelli holding up the number ten jersey.

The former City striker signed a five-year contract with the Sky Blues from Manchester United in 2009 for a reported £25.5m fee, although some have claimed the figure was £47m.

He has since made 148 appearances and scored 74 goals for the blue half of Manchester, albeit he was fined and suspended by City following his infamous Champions League stand down at the Alianz Arena in Munich in 2011.
