Striker set to end United ‘frustration’

Published Add your comment

Dimitar Berbatov’s agent says his client is ready to end a ‘frustrating season’ by securing a move away from Old Trafford – but says the Bulgarian won’t play for another Premier League club.


Berbatov’s future at Manchester United has looked bleak since he was dropped for the Champions League final against Barcelona last May, while since then Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed he won’t stand in the way should the former Tottenham forward seek a move to another club.


United’s record signing has played just four league games since the start of 2012 with his last outing coming in Sunday’s comfortable 2-0 win over Swansea, and is expected to head back to Germany with both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund interested.

Berbatov's agent, Emil Dantchev, confirmed that he didn't envisage playing for another Premier League club, and that he was desperate to get playing regular first team football again.


“Dimitar does not want to play for another club in England,” Emil Dantchev told


“He would like to try a new challenge in another league. It has been a frustrating season and now he just wants to play football.”


Manchester United signed Berbatov from Tottenham for £30.75 million in 2008 and was the joint top scorer in the Premier League last season.


However the 31-year-old has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford with Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez moving above him in pecking order.


Despite the fact he is destined to leave the reigning champions in the summer Ferguson remains adamant that he will not be allowed to leave on the cheap, saying last month: “Berba is a top, top player who has years left at the highest level.


“We won’t be letting him go for nothing.”
