Caros Tevez has claimed he joined Manchester City after Manchester United failed to follow up their interest in him.
The Blues picked up the Argentina international in 2009 after he had spent two successful seasons at Old Trafford.
And the revelation that Tevez had apparently spurned United’s bid to sign him on a permanent deal in order to become a key figure for the Blues, caused ructions.
City rubbed it in with their infamous ‘Welcome to Manchester’ poster on Deansgate, but Sir Alex Ferguson later claimed the Reds had lost interest in the player.
Tevez had been popular at Old Trafford, with fans regularly singing 'Fergie, sign him up!'
But the former United boss said the club had lost interest when the striker said he planned to retire in 2013. He also claimed the player had played ‘for himself’ in the 2009 Champions League final.
But Tevez said United were unhappy that he joined City, for whom he played a major role, being a key figure in them breaking their 35-year trophy drought and qualifying for the Champions League for the first time.
Tevez told Spanish newspaper Marca he had no problems with the United boss when he was at Old Trafford: “Nothing happened with Ferguson, it was a normal relationship,” he said.
“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.”
