United - Berbatov Contract Wrangle!

United - Berbatov Contract Wrangle!

The Sunday tabloids are awash with rumours relating to a new deal for our current leading scorer Dimitar Berbatov!

The Bulgarian has a mere eighteen months left on his current contract and has expressed a desire to continue his career at Old Trafford.

But, one article we stumbled upon, points out that as Dimitar is thirty years of age he falls into the category whereby United tend to only offer a years extension to a players contract.

The article goes on to say that if that is the case Berbatov will seek a salary of £120,000 a week but if United are prepare dot make an exception and offer a longer contract he`d be prepared to lower his salary demands.

It remains to be seen what happens next!

assuming he wont return to Spurs, I hope he signs another deal with you, he is a fantastic player.

Personally - the only reason I'd give Dimi a contract extension is so we could get a sell on fee 18months from now. In two seasons time Welbeck will be more than good enough to hold down a squad place alongside Rooney and Hernandez. We'll then have King and Keane pushing for that 4th spot - and thats assuming that Macheda, Diouf and Bebe dont surprise us and turn out to be half decent (they wont).

Dimi is doing well for the moment but I think we should do what our club has always done and give youth a chance - especially to home grown talent like welbeck.

You let the cat out of the bag by caving in to Rooney. Watch every senior player start asking for more and more money now that they've seen Rooney hold you to ransom. Getting Rooney signed up saved you a lot of face, but it's going to cause you a lot of problems, especially when people see how poorly Rooney has been playing.

Didn't he say he can't see his career extending past the age of 32 which means this contract can only be for the next couple of years. I can't imagine him being sold, Fergie likes him too much and has alot of faith in him and in all fairness rightly so with his current form. tuscan though I would say you're being a bit harsh on Macheda, Diouf and Bebe though I understand your reasoning behind listing them. Macheda could easily of got a good few goals to his name if his first touch hadn't repeatedly let him down. Diouf is very athletic and in that sense is built for the PL however I feel his off the ball runs and dribbling skills as well as his finishing lets him down though this can all be improved. Bebe we haven't seen much of and is repeatedly described as having alot of potential and is often deployed out on the wing moreso than up top.

Also this "local" business really bugs me. Though I think your right about giving Welbeck a chance is spot on I believe you've displayed the wrong reasons. How many people support their local club? How many of the clubs players are local or even English? Are the owners, managers and staff local? The fascination with location in football baffles me.
