Blame it on the credit crisis, or the fact that Manchester United are notorious for dragging their heels. Whatever the reason might be, Argentine ace Carlos Tevez isn’t buying any of it! He wants to know why United won’t give him a new deal as soon as possible.
The Argentina striker joined the club in the summer of 2007 on a two-season loan deal and has repeatedly expressed a desire to commit himself permanently to the Old Trafford club. His advisor Kia Joorabchian recently rejected an overture from Manchester City a fortnight ago.
However recent reports have emerged that Tevez is getting frustrated by the situation and is wondering why United are dragging their heels with the global financial crisis being cited as a reason of a reported £30m deal not being carried out. The Glazer family’s takeover of United was heavily geared around debt and United’s sponsors AIG among the companies caught in the economic downtown, which has effectively forced them to be nationalised.

Tevez does have a valid point. Manchester United have been slow-rolling the striker for some time now; but with AIG on the ropes, and Berbatov currently on the payroll, you have to wonder if the club has the funds for Tevez at the moment.
What do United supporters think about this whole situation? Will Tevez be a Red Devil for years to come?
