Tevez keen to clinch Man Utd deal

Mancheter United striker Carlos Tevez says he hopes to agree terms on a permanent deal at Old Trafford before the end of the season.

The 24-year-old Argentine signed a two-year loan deal in August 2007 from West Ham although his registration is with the sports investment firm MSI.

"From the moment I came here I wanted to sign a longer contract," said Tevez.

"It would be wonderful if the chairman put a long term contract on the table for me. I would sign it without doubt."

The Argentina international scored 19 goals in 48 matches last season to help the Red Devils win the Premier League and Champions League.

And United boss Sir Alex Ferguson expects him to remain at Old Trafford beyond the summer of 2009, when his loan deal expires.

"There's no doubt in my mind that he will be here next season after signing a contract," insisted Ferguson.

"As I understand it, it (a permanent deal) will happen at the end of the season."

Tevez could cost United in the region of 32m, eclipsing the 30.75m paid to Tottenham Hotspur for Dimitar Berbatov in August.
