Sergio Aguero has undergone a medical ahead of his proposed move to Manchester City from Atletico Madrid.
The Argentina international has jetted in to Manchester and will hold talks with the Eastlands outfit over personal terms with a fee, understood to be in the region of £38million, believed to have been agreed.
City boss Roberto Mancini confirmed his interest in the gifted forward earlier this month and admitted on Monday that he was keen to see a deal concluded this week.
And with the talented 23-year-old having jetted into the North West, it appears his proposed big-money switch to the ambitious Premier League club is a significant step closer to being completed.
"Just arrived in Manchester to finalise the details of signing with City," Aguero wrote on Twitter.
"Everything is going very well! I'll tell you more in a while."
Aguero confirmed earlier in the summer that he was planning to leave Atletico, who he joined in 2006 from Independiente in his homeland.
Real Madrid was believed to be his most likely destination, before City confirmed their interest and moved swiftly to the head of the queue for his signature.
Aguero was recently on international duty for Argentina in the Copa America, but was unable to prevent the hosts from suffering a disappointing early exit from the tournament.
It has been suggested that the arrival of the highly-rated attacker could pave the way for Carlos Tevez to leave, but Mancini has always insisted he wants his skipper to remain despite his well-publicised desire to depart.
