Tevez became a fans’ favourite during his two-year spell at Old Trafford.
But the Red Devils failed to agree a personal contract with Tevez.
“If I play for Manchester City I don’t think the United fans will feel I am a traitor,” he told The People.
“They have to remember that at least as far as I know I have been thrown out of the club and I have to study the best offers available.
“[Leaving] came about because I could not stand my sporting situation at Manchester United any longer.
“My first year was good in all senses. I played in the games and felt respected by the coach but in my second year some strange things happened that I still do not understand.
“After the game at Old Trafford where Liverpool beat us [4-1, in March], Ferguson ignored me almost as if I was to blame for the defeat when really Liverpool dominated us all over the pitch.
“After that the fans called for me to be in the team but he never took the advice on board because he always knows best.
“I gave everything for Manchester United and people know that. For that reason I don’t deserve the way things have ended up.”
