Tevez risks pricing himself out of Man Utd stay

Carlos Tevez is demanding a new deal at Manchester United to place him alongside top earners Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo. The Mail on Sunday says talks between United and the Argentina striker's advisers have stalled because of £120,000-a-week demands from the 24-year-old, who has repeatedly stated his desire to stay at Old Trafford.

Boss Sir Alex Ferguson and United have agreed a fee of £32million with Tevez's owners, MSI, £4m of which has already been paid during Tevez's two-year loan spell at the club.

But personal terms are proving a sticking point, with United offering £80,000 a week rather than placing him among their highest earners, including European player of the year Ronaldo and regular captain Rio Ferdinand.
