Carlos Tevez agrees to three-year deal with Juventus

Carlos Tevez will wear Alessandro Del Piero's old No. 10 jersey at Juventus.

Carlos Tevez has agreed to a three-year contract with Juventus.

The Italian champions said the deal was subject to a physical and was to be finalized on Thursday.

Juventus said Wednesday he will wear Alessandro Del Piero's old No. 10 jersey, which Tevez promptly displayed from a balcony. Del Piero left Juventus a year ago after 19 seasons with the club.

Manchester City agreed on Tuesday to sell Tevez after four seasons in a transfer worth up to 12 million pounds ($18.5 million) with bonuses.

Tevez joined City in 2009 after leaving Manchester United and played an integral role in the club's rise as a Premier League power, eventually becoming its captain.

He helped City end its trophy drought by winning the FA Cup in 2011 and the Premier League in 2012.

Tevez refused to enter as a substitute in a Champions League match at Bayern Munich in September 2011, sparking a fallout with then-manager Roberto Mancini. Tevez didn't play again until March 2012.
