Tevez hits out over contract

06 January 2009 07:43
Carlos Tevez has accused Manchester United of playing games with his future after denying he has been offered a permanent deal to stay at Old Trafford. Tevez, 24, is now in the final six months of a two-year loan deal, but is unhappy that United boss Sir Alex Ferguson recently suggested he had rejected a contract offer to make his stay into a permanent transfer. The long-term future of the Argentina international has been brought into question following United's £30million capture of Dimitar Berbatov last summer. With Berbatov in the ranks, Tevez has started just eight Premier League games this season. "I didn't like him (Ferguson) saying I didn't like the offer I was made because neither my agent nor me were given one," Tevez told Argentinian radio. "I don't know anything on my future. United know what they must pay if they want me to stay. "I want to stay but the club have not made any offer. I've been waiting for them for a year and a half." Tevez has continually suggested he wants to sign a permanent contract with the Red Devils. However, the former Boca Juniors and Corinthians striker has admitted the protracted nature of the deal could force him to look elsewhere. "If I have to quit the club, I want to quit on good terms," he continued. "Now all clubs are on an equal footing. If a club comes to me and offers me a five-year deal, I will accept it for peace of mind. "I will sign my last contract, and then I figure that I'll go back to Boca (Juniors). That could be in four or five years. "I want everybody to know no offer has been made. I don't like that they are playing with our fans, who show their love to me in each match."
