Kia Joorabchian has insisted there is no problem between Carlos Tevez and Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Argentine striker is currently in the second year of a complicated loan move with the deal set to expire at the end of the season.

Tevez, who has not been able to hold down a regular starting place this term, has yet to agree a permanent contract with Manchester United.

Speculation has suggested that Tevez's days at Old Trafford could be numbered and the 24-year-old has been quoted as saying he would be interested in playing for Real Madrid.

However, Joorabchian maintains that his client is happy at United and has a good relationship with Ferguson.

Asked if there was an issue between Tevez and Ferguson, Joorabchian told Ole: "No. Tevez just wanted to clarify that he hadn't received an offer. Everything's fine.

"He gets on very well with Ferguson. Everything started with a lie written by an English journalist who wrote that Ferguson had said they made an offer.

"The truth is there are no problems and he's going to carry on playing for Manchester United until the end of the season."

Ferguson recently stated that he had 'no idea' about when Tevez's future would be resolved and Joorabchian concedes that he does not know if a permanent deal will be agreed.

"It's hard to know," he said. "From my experience I'd say that anything can happen."
