New Delhi: Carlos Tevez has revealed to Diego Maradona that he is not at all happy at having to play a peripheral role at Manchester United since Dimitar Berbatov's arrival.

In a recent interview, Argentine legend and current national team boss Diego Maradona touched on a number of issues, including Carlos Tevez's supposed disenchantment with life at Old Trafford.

"Carlitos was very angry as he is not playing, but I advised him to take things easy," claimed 'El Diego', who recently publicly encouraged his young compatriot to relocate to Inter Milan.

Although Tevez has become more familiar to the substitutes bench at Man United since the arrival of Dimitar Berbatov, the recent injury to Wayne Rooney should see him play a pivotal role in the next few games.

Whether the ex-Boca Juniors prodigy has a future at Old Trafford beyond this season is less clear, however, as the Red Devils have had plenty of time to tie up a permanent deal before now, and with the likes of Danny Welbeck and Fraizer Campbell emerging United could decide on the cheaper options.

Tevez is coming to the end of his two-year loan spell with the club, and is owned by Iranian businessman Kiavash Joorabchian.

United have reportedly baulked at the £32 million price tag being demanded by Tevez's representatives for a permanent deal and seem set to allow him to move on next summer.

Inter, Barcelona, Chelsea and Real Madrid have all been credited with an interest in his services, and Tevez would likely fetch a fee in excess of £20 million.
