United heading for striker crisis as Tevez says 'No' to new deal...

Carlos Tevez has finally delivered the news Fergie and many supporters had been dreading, the Argentine is not going to take up the offer of a new five year deal. The news comes as no great surprise and few will blame the player who has been marginalised since the arrival of Dimitar Berbatov.

Fergie will find it difficult to find another striker who will consistently give 100% week-in, week-out. The fans will be especially disappointed about this news, and sensible observers will likely concur the player has been treated unfairly by Fergie and the club who only came up with a long-term deal at the death. Chances are Tevez will sign for Manchester City and with Ferguson now short of two top strikers the club could be heading for a goal-scoring crisis next season.

Manchester United are to blame for the mess they find themselves in, and they will now likely pay a high price with prospective selling clubs raising the price of any would be transfer targets knowing that the champions are desperate.

The player's representative Kia Joorabchian has confirmed that United decided to pull the plug on talks after it became clear Tevez and his advisors wanted more time to think about offers on the table. United wanted a decision after making what has been described as a good offer, but clearly the new five year contract offer has taken too long to materialise.
