Manchester United defender Wes Brown could be on his way out of Old Trafford after a falling out with manager Sir Alex Ferguson, reports The Daily Mail.

The former England utility defender was seeking a new long term contract extension with his current deal set to run out in 2013.

But in his attempts to secure a new deal, he seems to have fallen out with Ferguson, who is no stranger to confrontations with his players.

The likes of Jaap Stam, David Beckham and Ruud Van Nistelrooy have all left Old Trafford in acrimonious circumstances after falling out with the manager, and it appears Brown will be going the same way as those United greats.

 

Brown turned down a new contract in 2007, before signing his current deal just four months later.

The signings of Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Chris Smalling has pushed the 31-year-old down the pecking order at the Theatre of Dreams and he now appears to want a new challenge elsewhere.

Brown has played over 200 times for United since his debut in 1999, the same year he made his first of 23 England caps before retiring last year.

The defender has won no fewer than 14 major honours in the red of United, the only club he's played for since signing as a professional in 1996.
