After Carlos Tevez helped Manchester United win both the Premier League and Champions League in his first season with the club, it seemed a certainty that his loan deal would be made permanent.

No contract was offered during the summer, however, as Sir Alex Ferguson instead decided to blow most of his transfer kitty on Bulgarian star Dimitar Berbatov.

And now, with a pre-agreed €34 million price-tag hanging off his collar, Tevez is struggling to get a game for the Red Devils - quite remarkable considering he scored 19 goals in all competitions last term.

Real Madrid and Inter Milan are among a number of clubs who have in recent months sought talks with Media Sports Investment (MSI), the firm which owns the Argentine star's rights.

But the 24-year-old, who is currently holidaying in Buenos Aires, has insisted that he is not at all perturbed by the uncertainty surrounding his position at Old Trafford.

Tevez told The Daily Mail: "I am not preoccupied about my future. 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."

Tevez has started just eight out of a possible 18 Premier League games this season, as he has become the fourth prong in United's preferred three-man attack of Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Berbatov.

And the former West Ham United star admitted that it has not been easy competing for a first-team place against such a highly talented batch of attackers.

"It has been a complicated season for me, there is no point denying that," he said. "I have not been able to get as many minutes on the field as I would like because the quality of the forwards at the club is incredible.

"It is not easy for forwards to get into this team and I have suffered. But that does not make me want to leave. I have no urge to run away."

Tevez's loan deal with United expires at the end of the season.

Real out to tie up deal for Tevez

MANCHESTER UNITED are facing the real prospect of losing Carlos Tevez in this transfer window.

The club have still not made his loan deal permanent despite assurances in the summer it would be completed.

Now Real Madrid are ready to make their move for the Argentine, 24.

Agent Kia Joorabchian, who owns the rights to the striker, will be prepared to do business with Inter Milan also interested.

United have Tevez on a two-year loan with a verbal agreement for a £32million transfer.

But United are not sure he is worth that in a deflated market and Joorabchian fears United will pull out in the summer.

As it is, Tevez is unhappy at having to play second fiddle to Dimitar Berbatov.

I read somewhere else that Moaninho is ready to offload David Suazo, Julio Cruz and A-drink-ano in the hunt for a striker to support Ibrahimovic. Because his hand picked wingers Mancini and Quaresma stinks.
