Man Utd Transfer News: Interest Grows In £30m Striker

By on November 8, 2011

It is looking increasingly likely that Manchester United will be at least one striker lighter this summer, as interest grows across Europe in Sir Alex Ferguson’s £30.75 million signing, Dimitar Berbatov.

The Bulgarian was linked with a move to German side Schalke, with their Dutch striker Klass Jan Huntelaar supposedly set for a move in the other direction in some sort of player-swap deal. Now, the 30 year-old is said to be a serious target of both Galatasaray and Valencia.

Both reports suggest that United would be prepared to sell Berbatov for a significantly lower amount than which they paid a few years ago, with the Turkish media claiming Galatasaray would pay as little as £7 million, and Valencia just £10 million. A loss on the £30 million United paid was always inevitable, and with Berbatov’s contract running out, a smaller fee is understandable.

Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Bayern Munich and even Inter Milan have all been linked with Berbatov, who is undoubtedly good enough for any of those sides. He is unfortunate in the sense that despite being at one of the biggest clubs in the world and being United’s top goalscorer last season, he is among a number of extremely talented strikers, and is finding appearances hard to come by.
