Cristian Montano has explained his decision to leave West Ham, whilst insisting that money is not an issue.
After KUMB.com exclusively revealed earlier this afternoon that the 20-year-old striker had rejected United's offer of a new one-year contract extention, he denied that his decision was motivated by finacial terms.
Speaking via his Twitter account this evening, Montano - who failed to make a single first team appearance for the Hammers - rejected suggestions that his main motivation for rejecting the club's offer was financially related.
"Why does everyone always think that money is always the case in football?", he said. "I love the game [and it's] nothing to do with me being greedy.
"For all who want to know what is happening, I was unable to agree a new contract with my boyhood club, West Ham. Totally gutted."
Montano - who compared himself to Arsenal's Robin Van Persie after receiving some abusive comments from Twitter users following KUMB's earlier revelation - is hoping to move abroad having spent the last nine years with West Ham.

''So Montano, if you didn't sign a new deal with your so-called boyhood club, and it wasnt for financial reasons then why didnt you sign a new deal then? And as for being as good as RVP you better wake up sonny, it'll be years before you're anywhere near his calibre.''
