Berbatov Serie 'A` Bound

Berbatov Serie 'A` Bound

As we`ve suspected all summer, the United career of Dimitar Berbatov looks to be coming to an end.

With Robin Van Persie boosting the strike force it always seemed only a matter of time before the Bulgarian was on the move.

Throughout the summer Berbatov has been linked with various clubs but now it seems that Fiorentina, of Italy, are leading the race to sign the thirty-one year-old.

Prominent sources are inferring that a deal is set to be brokered with a fee of £5 million having been agreed by both clubs.

We`ll report further when any further developments related to the deal become known.

I am a Tottenham supporter who is interested in the reaction of the Man. United supporters to the news that Berbatov is to leave the club. The facts are, Berbatov became United’s most expensive player when he joined from Tottenham Hotspur in 2008 for £30.75m. Did the club get their moneys worth when the club is to get £5m for him? Will he go down as a waste of money as he only produced for one season? I have to admit I was really surprised he did not fit in at United after watching him for two seasons I thought Sir Alex would get the best out of him. The biggest thing for me was that by leaving Tottenham, the club went slightly backwards and it took another two seasons to really progress.

Berbatov is a class player but he never really fitted the united ethos. His style of play caused some sections of the support to level claims of laziness at him somewhat unfairly I thought. Not sure if we got our money's worth out of him and at £5 mil he is a bargain can't understand why it's taking so long to sell him who ever signs him won't disappointed. But he's fifth in the pecking order now and seemingly wants to play so he has to move on shame really.

So overall our net payment was 25.25 mil for Berbatov, not the biggest flop in our history but at the same time he was far from a success. In 4 years he managed 56 in 149 games, so near enough just over a goal under every 3 games and winner of one golden boot. I suppose when you look at it like that it isn't too bad however realistically the actual number of games Berbatov scored in was very few. Most games he wouldn't score just to get 2 or more goals in a single game thus flattering his goals to games ratio. I think the issue with Berby s he was a luxury buy, he never really fitted into the united system and style of play and as such could never thrive whilst at the club. No doubting his ability, he's a fantastic player however in a team whereby emphasis is placed on working hard, tracking back and then counter attacking with pace and speed Berby is a complete mismatch. He has always been the striker we never really needed but was bought because of one managers delusions that he would be the next cantona. At the same time I do feel for Berbatov in the sense that just as he started to prove he could adjust for the team and step-up when he was needed Rooney returned from injury and he was dropped straight back to the bench and never really seen or heard of again. Fergie was wrong and out of order to do that and then to keep him for a further year and a half when he knew he wasn't going to play him was just pathetic, was it some sort of punishment to pay him 90k a week but not play him at all? Not only would Berby of been allowed to get back on track with his career but we could've recouped more money when he was top goalscorer of the premier league than we can when he disappeared for a year and a half. To be honest the sooner he goes the better for both Berby and the club and best of luck to him wherever he goes. No doubt amongst most he will be remembered as a flop but I'll always be thankful for his efforts which arguably won us the league when he managed a glut of goals in half a season and made Fergies golden boy, who effectively publically humiliated the club and questioned its ambition, look like a (unt. Rooney thought by him not playing we'd capitulate without him just for Berby to show him up as not being so important to the team as he thinks.
