Tevez seems set on Paris Saint-Germain

AFP, PARIS

Argentina striker Carlos Tevez looks set to sign for Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain after they and his present club, Manchester City, reached an agreement on Tuesday, according to sources within PSG and the club’s owners.

PSG have offered the Argentina international — who has been out of favor at City since refusing to go on during a Champions League match — a three-and-a-half year contract, but no fee has been announced.

The deal is subject to the 27-year-old striker — who was to travel to Paris yesterday — agreeing to it.

Tevez has enjoyed success at virtually every club he has played for.

He landed the Copa Libertadores and the Intercontinental Cup — which is now the FIFA World Club Cup — with Argentine side Boca Juniors in 2003 and earned himself the nickname from the fans of the “People’s Player.”

He moved on to Brazilian outfit Corinthians and inspired them to the Brazilian championship, before transferring to West Ham United, whom he helped stay up in the Premier League on the last day of that season, scoring against Manchester United.

He moved to Manchester United from West Ham and collected the 2008 Champions League before a controversial move to United’s city rivals.

Awarded the captaincy, he went on to score 21 goals in the 2010-2011 season.
