Berbatov On His Way Out?

Football - Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United Barclays Premier League
Reports in today’s papers, stemming from the ever reliable ‘The Sun’ suggest that Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to sell striker Dimitar Berbatov. Ever since he made the deadline day move to Old Trafford from White Hart Lane on the 1st September 2008, Berbatov hasn’t made the impression that he would have wanted.

It is thought that Sir Alex has had enough and he is set to sell the 29-year old, even though he will get the £30 million United paid for him.

So Berbatov may possibly be on his way out and the press have wasted no time at all in naming some replacements. David Villa, Karim Benzema and Sergio Aguero have all been linked with a move to United, most of which are very unlikely to happen.

Benzema was one of United’s main transfer targets last season. He moved to Real Madrid along with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Ricardo Kaka, but after a poor season at the Bernabeu he has already been linked with a move away.

Rumours a few days back suggested that Man United had been offered 28-year old David Villa by Valencia, which United turned down due to financial restrictions.

21-year old Aguero is an exciting youngster and a player who Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to be looking at. The Argentine striker will also have a high price tag, which could put United off.

United may not be looking at anyone. Last Thursday it was announced that United will sign 21-year old Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez for an undisclosed fee on the 1st July 2010, subject to a work permit.

We already have Michael Owen, who may be out injured but he has said that he will still be at Man United next season. Danny Welbeck is also out after picking up an injury whilst out on loan with Preston North End but he could play more of a part next season.

Federico Macheda has recently returned from injury, he may not have played many games since joining United but last season he did score some vital goals. 22-year old Mame Biram Diouf joined us in January 2010; he has made six appearances for the first team, scoring one goal, which was when he made his debut at Old Trafford. There is also young Joshua King, who has been doing well for the reserves and did play in the League Cup match against Wolves this season.

This could also be the press making a mountain out of a molehill. Saying that, the further into the season we have got, the more likely it has looked that Berbatov could be leaving.

    It is looking embarrassing that this thing happen. The opposition are laughing their ass out with Berbatov in the team. The is no threat from him in the box or near the box. Why? Because he is playing a central midfielder job. If next season he stays, he will be playing a central midfielder job spraying passes and Fergie will give some players their chance or buy a new strikers. It means Berbatov should not have play as a striker at all because he is a midfielder. A lot of people never consider Berbatov to be a striker let alone like him.
