Yep, they signed another one!
Manchester City have agreed a deal to sign former West Ham and Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez.
The 25-year-old Argentine forward, who left Old Trafford last month, will sign a five-year deal subject to a medical.
“It’s terrific news,” City boss Mark Hughes said. “He is an international of the highest class who possesses all the attributes to help drive us forward.
“This is yet another deal that shows the commitment of the owner to make this club the very best it can be.”

So there you have it, Mark Hughes signs another striker, and even if you take into account the departures of Darius Vassell to Turkey (to a somewhat crazy rapturous reception), Daniel Sturridge and Jo’s loan move to Everton and the fairly likely exit of Benjani, the club still has a mountain of forwards.
To refresh your memories, the Eastlands outfit still has Robinho, Craig Bellamy, Ched Evans, Felipe Caicedo, Valeri Bojinov and new signing Roque Santa Cruz, that’s six international strikers plus Tevez, how the hell will the boss keep even half of them happy!
Surely the boss needs to bring in defenders? Clearly he has tried to get hold of John Terry, Matthew Upson, Joleon Lescott and Lucio, but none have taken the bait, this is clearly a problem that needs resolving otherwise the club will lose every game 5-4, which will be exciting to watch but will play havoc with the clubs fan’s nerves!
Anyway, the arrival of Carlito will surely not go down to well with their city rivals, but I guess that is merely a bonus for the Blue half of the city!
