Classy Berbatov Wants Out

The iconic Bulgarian has shown flashes of brilliance since his big money move to Old Trafford, last season he found himself slip down the pecking order and the 30-year old remained dignified throughout, however he now feels his time at Manchester United is coming to an end.

Berbatov’s £30.75million move from Spurs still stands as our record transfer fee, with the majority of United fans feeling that he hasn’t lived up to the hefty price tag. I have to say I disagree, it may have taken him a while to adapt, but he always offered us something different when he played. Who can forget that classy assist he gave Ronaldo vs. West Ham? Or his superb hat-trick vs. Liverpool? Lets be honest, he won us the Premier League crown back in 2010-11.

Last season, he found himself fourth choice striker, behind Rooney, Welbeck, and Hernandez, but when called upon he still managed to find the net 7 times in 12 league appearances.

Just as we thought the possibility of Berbatov staying at the club was a real option, the Bulgarian wrote this on his Facebook page “Because I am tired of speculation, I am telling you this. I read the papers and I see they say £10million is my price.

“I go and talk with Sir Alex, and he says to me £5million. So who is telling the truth, what do you think? “And 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 and my team-mates, whenever I have opportunity to do so.”


Personally, i’d love it if he stays, I just can’t see it though, he’s at that stage of his career where regular playing time is a necessity. With the club only asking for a mere £5million for him, surely one of Europe’s top clubs will come in for him soon, good luck to him, wherever he ends up!
