AGENT: No Problem For Berbatov To Leave United & Find A New Club

By on October 22, 2011

Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson made it very clear during the summer that they had no intention whatsoever of selling Dimitar Berbatov. A number of clubs may have shown an interest, but for both the club and the player, it was irrelevant as both wanted the same thing – for him to stay.

However, Berbatov’s contract does run out at the end of this season; June 2012. The player is living his dream to play at Old Trafford, but if he is not offered an extension to his current contract, there is little the 30 year-old striker can do but to find another club to play his football.

According to his agent, that will be no trouble at all. His outstanding technical ability, beautiful touch and control of the football and incredible composure on the ball have been clear for all to see since he joined United for just over £30 million in 2008, and if United do decide to wave a grateful goodbye to Berbatov at the end of the season, it is this quality which is not worrying Emil Dantchev at all. He said:

“We have to accept the reality of the situation, but make us an offer and we will accept, or if not, we’ll go.”

“Have patience though, knowing the quality of Berbatov, I’m not worried about him if we have to find another club.”

After a slow and critical start his career at Manchester United, Berbatov has scored 47 goals in 134 appearances including that wonderfully crucial hat-trick against Liverpool in September 2010. His unique style of play might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it has been effective in many United games over his short career in Manchester.

The Bulgarian has very much grown on United fans, with many feeling a great deal of sympathy for his lack of playing time this season when you consider he was the clubs top scorer last season as well as the Premier League joint golden boot winner.
