Old Trafford boss ready to offer Berbatov in deal to bring Bundesliga goal machine to the club.
Sir Alex Ferguson is hoping to tempt Bundesliga side Wolfsburg into selling Edin Dzeko to Manchester United by offering flop Dimitar Berbatov as part of an exchange deal. The Old Trafford boss is looking to bring in new attacking talent but knows that given the financial problems the club is going through that getting a significant cash injection could be tricky, hence the addition of the Bulgarian international as part of any deal.
Berbatov was of course a big success in his Bundesliga days where he managed 90 goals in 200 appearances whilst at Bayer Leverkusen, the form that helped the forward seal a move to Tottenham. After two decidedly average seasons at Man United it appears that Ferguson has run out of patience with the 29 year old and is looking to sign an alternative partner for England man Wayne Rooney.
Wolfsburg are resigned to losing Edin Dzeko who has completed a successful season whilst his side have struggled to live up to their title winning heroics the season before last. The 24 year old has been linked with a move to many of Europe’s elite, including most prominently AC Milan, Chelsea and Manchester City.
Ferguson hopes that a deal that would include Berbatov and cash on top would entice Dzeko’s employers into accepting an offer for their prized asset.
