Ladyman: Tévez medical Monday

Very good news from Monday's Mail: an Ian Ladyman article reporting that Carlos Tévez is due to have a medical at City, and should be our player in time for the South Africa tour this week:

Carlos Tevez will fly back from holiday today to complete a £25million move to Manchester City and disappoint Chelsea.

The striker was being pursued by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's club but is heading for City after being persuaded to join the ambitious project manager Mark Hughes is masterminding.

Tevez will undergo a medical today and is hoping to join City's tour of South Africa, which departs on Wednesday, with a five-year contract worth £150,000 a week agreed.

This is what we've been waiting for for weeks. Of course, no transfer saga is over until it's annouced on but this is the final step in that direction that's been so long in coming. We can now look forward, with a bit more confidence, to our all-South American front line next season, and may even see them fire us to Vodacom Challenge glory.
