Old Trafford boss looks to replace flop with in form Serie A striker.
Manchester United are hoping to sign Italian Giampaolo Pazzini to replace Old Trafford flop Dimitar Berbatov. The highly rated Sampdoria man is having the best season of his career and has fought his way into the Italian squad with his determined performances for the Genoa based side.
Sir Alex Ferguson will look to sell faltering Bulgarian international Dimitar Berbatov after running out of patience with the former Tottenham forward and even though he hopes to have funds to make a move for new players this summer the wily Scot is happy to remove under performing elements of his squad before bringing in new signings.
25 year old Pazzini has gone from strength to strength since his move from Fiorentina to Sampdoria and has helped Luigi Del Neri’s side to within reach of a Champions League spot but will surely still be very tempted by a potential move to the Premier League champions.
