Sensational news are out and it has been reported that Carlos Tevez has told Manchester United to make him the highest-paid player or else he would leave the club.
It is believed that the Red Devils have agreed the £26million asking price to make the Argentina striker’s loan move permanent.
But they have still to match the personal terms of £110,000 a week that stars Rio Ferdinand and Dimitar Berbatov earn.
Tevez, 25, has been on £95,000 a week since joining Alex Ferguson’s side but his loan ends at the end of this month.
Tevez is currently on holiday in Buenos Aires where it is believed that he has also been contacted directly by new Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Cash rich Manchester City are also interested in signing the striker as boss Mark Hughes bids to build a team capable of giving the Premier League’s Big Four a bloody nose.
It is believed that Tevez was frustrated with the Red Devils last season for leaving him in the dark over his future and now the player and his agent and co-owner Kia Joorabchian are happy to keep them waiting on their decision.
