Carlos Tevez has opened up on the reason behind about signing a permanent contract with Manchester United and instead choosing to join arch rivals Manchester City back in 2009.
Tevez played at Old Trafford for three seasons on loan from West Ham. He was immensely successful during this period after winning the league title twice and the Champions League once. However, when the two-year loan from West Ham was about to end, there was a lot of confusion about Tevez’ staying at Old Trafford. Manchester United’s then manager Sir Alex Ferguson insisted that he wanted to retain the forward from Argentina provided that the transfer fee was reasonable.
