United could sell top scorer to Juventus - reports

Manchester United could be set to part with striker Dimitar Berbatov to Juventus in a £7 million deal, according to the Daily Star.

Juventus are believed to be interested Berbatov as a third option after interest in Sergio Aguero and Giuseppe Rossi seems to have dissipated.

Primary targets Aguero and Rossi appear to be out of reach. Aguero preferring to stay in Spain or try his hand in the Barclays Premier League, while talks with £26 million-rated Rossi have broken down.

Those break downs have led Juventus to turn to United’s Berbatov, who was joint-top scorer in the top-flight last season.

The 30-year-old Berbatov has one year remaining on his United contract, although his future is uncertain after he was displaced by the pairing of Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney in the second half of the season.

The Bulgarian became the subject of much transfer buzz when he was famously omitted from United’s Champions League Final side against Barcelona at Wembley in May.


Juventus have also been linked with a £45 million move for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

It’s unsure as to whether Juventus would be interested in taking on both players, or whether or not Tevez would be willing to join the Italian giants.

Tevez has said that he would prefer to move back to South America as his family has failed to settle in England.

It’s been rumoured that a move to Spain, where the culture more closely matches that of South America, could also be a possibility for the City star.

Whether or not Tevez believes northern Italy is a suitable locale is yet to be seen.
