Tevez set to leave Man Utd after rejecting contract


Sensational news are out and it is reported that Manchester United have confirmed that Carlos Tevez will leave Old Trafford after he rejected a new five-year contract.

A statement on the club’s website said they had agreed to pay £25.5 million for the Argentine striker, but their contract offer was rejected.

The statement said that following contact received from Carlos Tevez’s advisors last night, in advance of the deadline the club set for concluding negotiations, Manchester United announces that Carlos will not be signing a new contract with the club.

It is also reported that the club agreed to pay the option price of £25.5m and offered Carlos a five-year contract which would have made him one of its highest paid players.

It was also stated that his advisors informed the club that, despite the success Tevez has enjoyed during one of the club’s most successful periods, Tevez does not wish to continue playing for Manchester United.

The statement also concluded by thanking Carlos for his services over the last two seasons and wishes him good luck for the future.

Tevez is a fans’ favourite at Old Trafford but his relationship with the club’s management soured in light of United’s reluctance to offer him a permanent contract.

Tevez was loaned from his third-party owners Media Sports Investment, and has been linked with a move to rivals Manchester City and Chelsea.

The 25-year-old joined United on an initial two-year loan deal from West Ham United in August 2007. He scored 34 goals in 98 appearances.

He had caught the eye of manager Alex Ferguson by scoring at Old Trafford as West Ham beat United 1-0 on the final game of the 2006-07 season to avoid relegation.

In his first season at United Tevez scored 19 goals and was a vital cog in the Premier League and Champions League winning side.

It will be interesting to see which other football club Tevez will sign for.
