Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov has revealed that although he love the club, he does not feel his future lies with the 19 times English Champions. Berbatov has fallen down the United pecking order following his 2008 transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to United. Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez all played in more games last season for the reds. United have additional attacking options also, with Shinji Kagawa a summer signing from Dortmund, also in contention for a starting berth. The Sun have revealed that United’s number 9 updated his Facebook status informing the world of his thoughts.
The former Bulgarian international wrote:
“The truth is I love this club, but I am not going to be useful to anyone if I am not playing, And I want to play, I want to help. But for unknown reasons it’s not going to happen or my chances will be limited, so it’s better for everyone if we say goodbye. If not, I am professional and I will keep doing everything I can to help my team whenever I have the opportunity to do so.”
He also discussed his potential transfer fee with many believing it will between £5-£10 million:
“Because I am tired of speculation, I am telling you this. I read the papers and I see they say £10m is my price. I talk with Sir Alex and he says £5m. So who is telling the truth, what do you think?”
Stretford-end.com blogger Sleep Nik, wrote a superb post on the influence of Dimitar Berbatov at United – but I’m sure many will agree that although the Bulgarian is insanely talented, his time at Old Trafford looks to be at an end. Wayne Rooney’s play is far more suited to that of Hernandez or Welbeck, who are both a nightmare to pick up with the movement they offer. This also allows Rooney to find more space and pick passes or indeed, get a shot in on goal – a reflection of his impressive goal tally from 2011/12.
Dimitar Berbatov was linked heavily to big spenders PSG last season and with former club Bayern Leverkusen at the start of the summer.
Where do you think Berbatov will end up? Could he get one last chance at United or has his Facebook update sealed his fate?
