Dimitar Berbatov's omission from Manchester United's squad against Newcastle United has swelled rumours of a move away from Old Trafford this summer.

The Bulgarian has been linked with a move away from the club fate being left out of a number of United's key matches this season.

A disappointing performance against Manchester City in the FA Cup final, where the forward missed two guilt edged chances in the first half, saw Berbatov left out altogether at St James's Park.

Such has been the impact of Javier Hernandez, who has struck 18 goals in his first season in English football, that Berbatov, despite being the Premier League's top scorer, has been usurped in the United first-team.


He started neither game against Chelsea in the Champions League, and was only including in the Wembley showdown against City due to Wayne Rooney's untimely suspension.

Supporters at the theatre of dreams have never taken to the forward due to his lethargic style on the pitch,and United fans may welcome the sale of Berbatov for a more combative striker in the mould of Carlos Tevez.

Tevez's international teammate Javier Pastore has been linked with the club for some months, with his club Palermo demanding as much as £35 million for the striker.
