Manchester City fullback Pablo Zabaleta has congratulated former teammate Carlos Tevez over his move to Juventus.

Zabaleta has conceded that the goalscorer has gone to one of the best teams on the continent.

"I wish Tevez the best for the future," he told reporters. "Carlos has gone to a big club.

"Juve are one of the best in Europe. He spent seven years in England, but has done well wherever he's gone.

"We are all going to miss him as a teammate, but transfers are just part of football."
