Berbatov Looking for the Exit Door

Berbatov Looking for the Exit Door

The Dimitar Berbatov conundrum continues to generate column inches.

The future of the Bulgarian looks to be as up in the air as ever. Previous inferences has suggested that Berbatov would be seeing out the remainder of his contract with no clubs having shown any confirmed interest in the thirty-one year old striker.

But, it seems that the striker doesn`t feel the same way and has taken to the networking site, Facebook, to plead his case, remarking,

"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 will keep doing everything I can to help my team whenever I have the opportunity to do so."

"Because I am tired of speculation, I am telling you this."

"I read the papers and see they say £10 million is my price. I talk with Sir Alex and he says £5 million. So who is telling the truth, what do you think?"

I`m now of the opinion that Berbatov will not be at Old Trafford come the end of the summer transfer window.

How about you?

Personally I think Fergie is trying to price him out of a move to keep him for an extra year until the end of his contract and simply just lose any potential fee we can muster from Berby and then when he does leave for free the club can say no one was interested and that he was for sale so we had no choice but to keep him. He should've left last season, but Fergie didn't want to sell him despite interest and good fees being thrown around for him and I can see him doing the same again. Got to feel sorry for Berby, he has pretty much been shat on by Fergie like Tevez before him simply because, like Tevez, there was new blood who he wanted to play despite form. He was a mismatch to the club from day one, the club demands high work rates, effort and quick counter attacking football traits that Berbatov just doesn't possess, he was a luxury buy, an excessive buy when we didn't need him. Berby carried us during the period in which Rooney went AWOL and Hernandez was getting to grips but was immediately dropped despite what he had done for us as soon as the golden boy was back and was isolated so much so that Owen some how made the bench over him for the CL final. Now however circumstances have changed in the sense that both Welbeck and Hernandez are better options than him and he can't get any game time because the competition is too strong. Hopefully he gets the move away he wants and can start anew elsewhere.

Too good not to be playing regular football

Can't believe you spent so much money on someone only to leave him to rot on the bench. Joint golden boot winner too! Shades of Veron all over that deal, as veron never really fit your system either. I guess Slur was so desparate to keep Berbatov out of our hands that he was willing to do anything, including spending money you should have used on your midfield. Suspect Tevez feared the same thing happening to him which is why he legged it.

Top player Fergie should just let him go and get his career back on track. He deserves more than being 4th choice forward.
