Old Trafford boss looks to lure German international by offering former Bundesliga goal machine in exchange.
Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to offer Dimitar Berbatov as part of deal to secure the signing of Werder Bremen playmaker Mesut Ozil. With the Bundesliga outfit reportedly ready to listen to offers for the German international starlet Man United are hoping the inclusion of the Bulgarian international would help sway them into accepting an offer from the Old Trafford side.
Berbatov’s success in Germany during his five seasons at Bayer Leverkusen may help persuade Bremen to consider an exchange deal and Ferguson seems more than able to allow the 29 year old to leave after two less than successful seasons at the club.
Ozil is yet to agree a new deal and with his current deal set to come to an end next summer Werder Bremen will not want to run the risk of losing the player for nothing and are instead ready to listen to offers for the 21 year old attacking midfielder who was a big success at the World Cup in South Africa.
Ferguson could well do with the addition of the creative midfielder as he looks to improve his squad. The former Schalke man is a great source of forward momentum and has an eye for goal as well as being a great provider. Last term he managed to net 11 goals as well as being the Bundesliga top assist maker.
The likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal and Bayern Munich have all been linked with a move for the youngster.
