Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has risked the wrath of Alex Ferguson by reacting to the manager's comments regarding his contract situation.

Tevez, 24, revealed his disappointment at speculation that he had rejected a new offer from the Premier League champions, and he reiterated his desire for his future to be sorted.

'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,' the Argentina international, whose deal runs out in the summer, told Radio del Plata.

'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.'

The ongoing saga has prompted reports that Tevez, who joined United from West Ham in 2007, is a target of Real Madrid.

The forward added: 'If I have to quit the club, I want to quit on good terms.

'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.'
