Manchester United To Accept £22m For Star Striker?

By on April 4, 2011

If reports are to be true, Manchester United are reportedly considering selling Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov. This come amidst reports that Bayern Munich are readying a €25m (£22m) for the former Tottenham striker.

Berbatov has not been happy sitting out on the bench for Manchester United over the recent weeks and his prolific goalscoring record has prompted the Allianz Arena giants to make a move for him in the coming summer transfer window.

Berbatov enjoyed a successful time in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen, netting 91 goals for the club before moving to White Hart Lane in the summer of 2006 and now incoming Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes wants to bring the 30 year old to spearhead the Bavarian side’s attack. There is growing speculation that current top scorer at Bayern Munich, Mario Gomez, may well be heading to Italy where there is interest from both Napoli and Lazio.

Ferguson is currently more content with the formidable strike partnership in England’s Wayne Rooney and young Mexican Javier Hernandez (Or otherwise known as Chicharito). 22 million might be a bit inflated given Berbatov’s age, but it is definitely worth considering the fact that this is the best season of his career (so far).

    i wouldnt be shocked if it was true but i do believe if he does go we have to replace him with someone else. danny welbeck is good but his no berbatov. i think we should try to sigh hulk highly underrated and compared to players like neymar, aguero (who i think arnt better than hulk) they price tag is off the roof. hulk would cost a maximum of about 25 to 30 mill which i think is a good deal. you only have to watch him aginst us and chelsea to know what im talking about.

    berrba is hard to figure out. he is either at the top of his form or at the lowest form. I think he is an excellent player, but does not fit into the fast pace style of the EPL. seel him, we have rooney and hernandez, as well as welbeck, macehda and diouf to use as subs. buy sneijder to fill in the attacking midfield role.

    Sell him! This is a chance to get back a large portion of his transfer fee. Of course we will miss his hold up play and this season hes played much better but neymar comes half the price this way or a full benzema don’t forget berba is 30 and will only decrease in value now

    Berba is Quality. He isn’t a perfect fit for United, however, I’d be happy if he stayed. He’s still very much so in his prime and has want and the desire to be a Manchester United player. Enough said…

    Berbatov is a good player, quick feet, great first touch but he doesn’t do it week in week out. The last few weeks, we have seen rooney and hernandez link up well together, Rooney dropping deeper to provide more assists, taking the lone striker burden off him and allowing hernandez to be the poacher.
    I would prefer to have rooney, instead of last season scoring 40goals but more scoring 20 and providing 20, for the benefit of the team.
    Sell him, and use the money to strengthen the middle of the park. Hargreaves, sad to say it, is coming to an end as is scholes. Carrick doesn’t seem to know what a forward pass is, and im not a fan of gibson. Fletcher can be commended on his work rate but we lack so much creativity.
    I would love to see fergie bring in someone like modric,

      i would sell carrick and anderson, buy either modric or sneijder for the attacking role, and rodwell for holding midfield
