Alex Ferguson London, June 3 (ANI): Manchester City are close to signing Argentine football star Carlos Tevez for 32 million pounds.

The Argentine striker’s advisor Kia Joorabchian is due to meet with Old Trafford chief executive David Gill to discuss the possibility of United paying a further 25.5 million pounds to turn Tevez’s two-year loan into a permanent move.However, Joorabchian has already thrashed out a possible transfer to Eastlands, Sun Sport reveals.

Tevez would team up with England midfielder Gareth Barry, who sealed his 12 m pounds switch to City from Aston Villa last night.

City boss Mark Hughes’ stunning statement of intent is likely to leave his old United mentor Alex Ferguson fuming.

Tevez, 25, has had his head turned by the offer of a staggering 140,000-pound a-week wages from City.Money is no object, with City’s Arab owner Sheikh Mansour banking another 1.5 billion pounds by selling some Barclays shares last night. (ANI)
