Tevez calm over United future

02 January 2009 08:21
Striker Carlos Tevez is confident of putting pen to paper on a permanent contract with Manchester United. The 24-year-old Argentinian has yet to make his loan deal - which has less than six months left to run - into a full-time contract with the reigning Premier League and European champions. Tevez's future at Old Trafford has been brought into question following the £30million arrival of Dimitar Berbatov last summer. However, the South American is confident of signing a permanent deal despite reports of interest from Internazionale and Real Madrid. "I am not preoccupied about my future," he said. "My instincts are to stay with the club and in the next week or so I think there will be more contact with regards to sorting out my contract. That is what we've been told. "My agent is in touch with United all the time and he tells me that everything is very positive now. So it is up to the club. "Other clubs have asked about me but I see my future at United."
