Juventus signing Carlos Tevez says he asked Manchester City to sell him.
Tevez has agreed a three-year deal with the Turin side and, speaking at a media conference on Thursday, was delighted to finally complete the move.
He said: "I thank Juventus for the effort they have done to bring me here. And I thank Manchester City for the beautiful years they gave me.
"I talked to Pellegrini, telling him that I wanted to go away from Manchester City because I considered my cycle ended there."
