Manchester United are on course for another potential contract dispute after Rio Ferdinand's advisers told the club that he will not discuss a new deal before the summer.

United are eager to open talks with Ferdinand over an extension to his contract, which expires at the end of next season, but Ferdinand's agent, Pini Zahavi, has instructed that negotiations will not start before the summer.

The Old Trafford hierarchy is hoping that an agreement will be reached quickly at that point, but, given that it took 16 months to complete Ferdinand's present contract, it is apprehensive about the situation.

United are also aware that the 29-year-old has expressed an ambition to play in Italy or Spain towards the end of his career and that, because he would be eligible to leave on a free transfer if no deal is agreed by June 2009, he and Zahavi will be in a strong bargaining position when negotiations start.
