London, Oct.7 : Argentinean football star Carlos Tevez believes that his future with Manchester United is in doubt because he still has not been offered a contract.
While the club's CEO, David Gill, has said that a contract would be offered to Tevez before the New Year, coach Alex Ferguson claims it will not be sorted until the end of the season.
According to The Sun, Tevez, who use to play for Westham, is frustrated at being benched in three of the last four games. He is also angry that the vacant No 9 shirt was offered to Bulgarian football star Dimitar Berbatov rather than to him this season. Manchester United secured Tevez, 24, on an initial two-year loan at the start of last term after his controversial spell at West Ham.
But Tevez and Joorabchian, who also owns the rights to the player, were told a permanent deal would be done soon. An agreed fee of 30-million-pounds would then go to Joorabchian.
