United striker tipped for £18m exit - reports

Published Add your comment

Paris Saint-Germain's long-standing association with a move for Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov is set to go up a notch, according to reports, as the French side prepare a formal offer.

According to The Mirror, PSG are ready to table a bid in the region of £18 million for the Bulgaria international, as they look to continue their free-spending ways under new Qatari ownership.

The Ligue 1 outfit have already added Kevin Gameiro, Blaise Matuidi, Jeremy Menez and Milan Bisevac to their ranks, and are expected to beat Chelsea and others to the signature of Palermo playmaker Javier Pastore.

And, although Berbatov only has one year remaining on his United contract, it would seem PSG are content with paying a hefty transfer fee to lure him away from Old Trafford a season early.


It would appear unlikely that Berbatov will get much of a look-in under Sir Alex Ferguson next term, due to the blossoming partnership of Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez - even though he ended last season as United's top-scorer.

However, the 30-year-old was restricted to mainly substitute appearances during the second half of the last campaign, thanks to the rapid rise of Hernandez.

Berbatov even found himself omitted from the match day squad for the Champions League final against Barcelona, and has since been consistently linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
