Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has revealed his disappointment over speculation suggesting he had rejected a new contract to stay at the club.

The Argentina striker, who was given a week off by Sir Alex Ferguson over the New Year, insists he wants to stay at Old Trafford and he could not explain where the media reports were coming from.

"We have not started talks with Manchester United yet, though I am keen to stay," said Tevez who was keen to stress that he will sit down and discuss a new deal with United at the 'appropriate time'.

He added: "Sir Alex Ferguson has told me he wants me to remain a United player and that is certainly my desire too.

"My contract ends in the summer and we have agreed to sit down at the appropriate time and discuss a new contract. Nothing I have heard from the club suggests it will be otherwise.

Tevez's economic rights are owned by an investment fund headed by Kia Joorabchian.

He added: "Manchester United have indicated they would like to sign Carlos for the long term, but we have not started negotiations yet.

"Carlos has always said his intent is to stay at United and nothing has changed.

"The supporters have been amazing to him and he loves the club."
