When Dimitar Berbatov joined Manchester United in the summer, and Wayne Rooney was riding on the crest of a goal scoring wave, things didn't look too rosy for Carlos Tevez.
In fact, things got quite hard for him as he was left on the bench game after game after game.
At this point he could have given up, faced with a seemingly impossible task to get into the first team.
But not Carlos Tevez.
He rolled his sleeves up and got stuck in. As I write this, I would say it is impossible for Fergie to choose which of the three options he has up front.
Well, such dedication and commitment has paid off for him as United are now keen to offer him a new deal.
Kia Joorabchian, Tevez's agent has been in negotiations (eventually) with United and a deal has reportedly been sorted out.
The deal could be worth £30 million, but with the involvement of Joorabchian who will get what is anybodys guess.
Tevez currently is paid £75,000 a week, but it is reputed thios new deal could be worth around £12 million in 3 years to Tevez.
