(CNN) -- Wes Brown's future at Old Trafford looks in doubt after Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson criticized the England international defender for rejecting a new deal.
Brown will become a free agent when his United deal runs out this summer.
The 28-year-old, who is a free agent in the summer, has turned his back on a reported offer of $80,000 a week to remain with United and Ferguson says the situation "depresses" him.
"We wouldn't have made the offer if we didn't have faith in him. But the players of today live in the pockets of their agents," he said.
"It's a situation which depresses me at times, it really depresses me. Wes has been with us since he was 12-years-old, but I don't think that matters these days.
"Agents live their players' lives and if you're happy to go along with that then you get the situation we've got just now. But Wes knows this. And the other players have told him."
Brown's excellent form this season won him a recall to the England starting line-up for Fabio Capello's first match in charge against Switzerland.
He has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs, including Newcastle United and Sunderland. E-mail to a friend
