Argentinian striker Carlos Tevez looks set to sign for Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint Germain after they and his present club Manchester City reached agreement on Tuesday according to sources within PSG and the club owners QSI.
PSG have offered the Argentinian international - who has been out of favour at City since refusing to go on during a Champions League match - a three-and-a-half year contract though no fee has been announced.
The deal is subject to the 27-year-old striker - who is due in Paris on Wednesday - agreeing to it.
Ironically, Tevez's move to Italian champions AC Milan fell through last week because of the refusal of their Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato to move to PSG in a reported 28million euro deal.
PSG's Brazilian sporting director Leonardo has always been an admirer of the former Lazio, Manchester United and Boca Juniors star and renewed contact with him following his falling out with City manager Roberto Mancini.
However, the arrival of two-time Champions League winning coach Carlo Ancelotti at the end of December tilted the balance and the Italian has been vociferous in recent days in calling for an experienced world class striker to be signed by the club.
