Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has reiterated his desire to sign a permanent contract at Old Trafford.
Tevez, 24, is currently in the final year of a two-season long loan with the Red Devils following his arrival from West Ham United in August 2007.
The Argentina international has scored 20 goals in 57 appearances and United have the option to make his loan deal into a permanent transfer for a fee reported to be in the region of £25million.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is confident the former Corinthians striker will still be at Old Trafford next season, but Tevez has again spoken of his desire to commit his future to the club.
He said: "Ever since I came here I have wanted to sign a permanent contract.
"I would sign it without a doubt.
"I had very happy first season and I would be very happy if the chairman would put a permanent contract in front of me."
