Manchester City completes 40-mn pounds deal for Tevez, CruzJune 23rd, 2009 - 2:37 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 23 (ANI): Manchester City has completed the 40 million pounds signing of ace striker Carlos Tevez and Roque Santa Cruz.
Blackburn striker Santa Cruz, 27, agreed a 15 million pounds switch to Eastlands and completed a medical.
His fee will increase to 18 million pounds based on appearances.
Tevez, 25, agreed to the astonishing move from Old Trafford, after a long chat with City boss Mark Hughes convinced him of the club’s ambitions, The Sun reports.
The Argentinean striker became sick of being down the pecking order at United and Hughes told him he would be his main hit man.
His 25.5 million pounds move will be completed on July 1, when his two-year loan deal with United comes to an end.
City will give him a five-year contract worth 100,000 pounds-a-week. (ANI)
