Alex Ferguson London, May 15 (ANI): Argentine striker Carlos Tevez has rejected a Real Madrid offer of 40 million pounds.

The Argentine turned down the offer as he is hopeful a deal can be struck with his current employers Manchester United.

The striker’s representative Kia Joorabchian has also insisted that it is up to Tevez to decide his future and that money is not an issue in determining his next move.

“Carlos will decide on his future. Carlos Tevez will decide where Carlos Tevez will play. This is not about money it’s about where Carlos wants to play and his family. To turn down the chance of progressing talks of this nature shows this,” The Independent quoted Joorabchian, as saying.

Tevez’s situation at Old Trafford has changed dramatically over the last few days. Having given an interview in which he said he no longer felt wanted at the club and would be leaving in the summer, the situation now appears to be that he wishes to stay.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has also insisted United would like the striker to remain at the club, despite reports to the contrary from Tevez’s representatives. (ANI)
