BERBS – TIME TO GO
Posted On May 22, 2012
Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has said that the time has finally come for him to leave Manchester United. The striker joined Manchester United in 2008 for a British transfer record fee of £ 31 million, but has struggled for first-team appearances lately.
Despite being the top scorer at the club in the previous season, he has been used very sparingly by the manager Sir Alex Ferguson. Due to the impressive performances of Danny Welbeck and Hernandez, it is unlikely that Dimitar Berbatov will get any chances in the first team next season. At 31 years of age, the Bulgarian has revealed that he wants first-team football and is prepared to look elsewhere.
Manchester United decided to extend his contract by one more year in March, but that is unlikely to prevent him from leaving the club according to the former Tottenham striker. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson recently revealed that he would be willing to listen to offers for the striker, but has also said that the club will not be selling him for cheap money. It is thought that United will undergo a massive transformation in the summer after failing to win any trophy this season. United have spent with little money on transfers in recent seasons.
“We talked 10 times, he told me there would be a place for me but I stayed on the bench. My time at United is running out, I no longer feel like a valuable part of this team. I think I did well in the few opportunities that I received. I am a little frustrated by the way this happened, I do not think I deserved it. But I have dignity and I stopped going to such meetings, it is clear that I’m leaving United. It’s obvious that I have to leave. I’m looking for a new place now,” Berbatov told the Sun.
