Manchester United have revealed Carlos Tevez chose to walk away from Old Trafford despite agreeing to pay the £25.5million option price on the player. Tevez, who had previously claimed he would prefer to stay with the champions, was offered a five-year deal and would have been made one of the club`s highest paid players. A United statement said: "Following contact received from Carlos Tevez's advisors (on Friday 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. "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."
