Carlos Tevez is keen to sign a permanent deal with Manchester United.
The Argentine forward is currently on a two-year loan deal at Old Trafford, which expires at the end of the season and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admitted over the weekend that he is ‘quite confident’ the champions will conclude a permanent deal for Tevez.
“All I’d like is that my rights are bought completely by the club and that my family and I can be sure we are here for years to come,” Tevez told The Sun.
Tevez, who has found himself out of the side in recent games, with Ferguson opting to pair Rooney with summer signing Dimitar Berbatov, believes he and Rooney have a telepathic understanding on the pitch.
“I knew when I came here there would be really tough competition for places, given that United already had Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne and Nani,” he added.
“But Alex always had total belief in me and told me so.
“There was all this nonsense about how myself and Wayne couldn’t play together, but we showed everyone. We have a perfect, intuitive understanding on the pitch, plus we get on brilliantly as pals.
“Give Wayne half a metre of space and he’ll pull out a brilliant goal. Wayne does amazing things, even when he has next to no space.
“As soon as I played with him, I copied his movement and explosiveness away from defenders, as there is far less time or space when you play for United than I’ve ever experienced.”
