Man Utd did not make me offer so I left for Man City – Tevez

Carlos Tevez has revealed that he left Manchester United because they simply did not put up a concrete offer for him.

Tevez infamously made a move from United to crosstown rivals Manchester City during the summer of 2009 and the fans of the Red Devils were certainly left incensed by the fact that the striker decided to snub them in favour of a switch to their fierce rivals.

However, Boca Juniors star Tevez has now gone on to shed light on the controversial move by revealing that his relationship with manager Sir Alex Ferguson was fine and due to the fact that United failed to offer him a decent proposal and as a result, he was free to join City.

The Argentine told Spanish paper Marca: "Nothing happened with Ferguson, it was a normal relationship. I went on loan to Manchester United for two seasons, and in the last year, Ferguson told me they will pay the fee to keep me.

"We reached the Champions League final in Rome, and I had no contract on the table. Then I went to City and they complained, but I had no offer to sign for United, and I was free to leave."
