Tevez to leave Manchester United

Manchester United have made it official, Carlos Tevez won't be renewing his contract with The Red Devils.

The Sun had reported yesterday(which we covered in our Gossip of the day) about Tevez's representatives and Manchester United reaching an agreement over the permanent transfer but couldn't agree on his weekly wages which the Argentine wanted increased to match with the high earners Rio Ferdinand and Dimitar Berbatov.However that seems to have been the tumbling block between the two parties.

The matter had been going on for quite some time and we had covered it ourselves.Read here.

The statement on United's official website read :

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.

Disappointingly however, his advisors informed the Club that, despite the success he has enjoyed during one of the Club’s most successful periods, he does not wish to continue playing for Manchester United.

The Club would like to thank Carlos for his services over the last two seasons and wishes him good luck for the future.

Tevez had rubbished reports linking him with Liverpool and the other interested party looks like Manchester United's local rivals,City who would be able to pay the money to bring in the "Energizer bunny". Are the Man U fans happy to see him go or wish Sir Alex had done more earlier than later?
