After the final whistle in our 2-1 victory over Wigan, Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed Carlos Tevez has been asked to stay after meetings with David Gill took place earlier today.

“He is a fantastic little player,” said Ferguson. “He knows I want him to stay. I have had a chat with him today. David Gill has had some meetings today and it has progressed, I’m sure, further. We hope we get what we want to get. I’m sorry to have to keep on with this all the time, but it has never changed. We are not negotiating with a football club, that is the problem. I think Carlos himself is okay. I think the terms he has been offered are good.”
