Manchester United Plan £49m Player Swap for La Liga Starlet!

Fergie to sacrifice big name for Argentine pretender!

Sergio AGUERO

The Rumour

Dimitar Berbatov’s short and tumultuous Old Trafford stay looks increasingly bleak as Manchester United weigh up a swap deal to lure Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero.

United are understood to have initially offered £34million and Portuguese bit-part winger Nani as a makeweight for the Argentine ace.

But the Spanish outfit, not keen on Nani, rejected the offer and now the Premier League champions are set to return with last season’s £30.75million Bulgarian recruit and £17.1million to force a deal with Atletico, according to Spanish daily AS.

Berbatov has come under intense scrutiny after an underwhelming first year at Old Trafford.
The striker has been labelled lazy and was roundly criticised following his FA Cup semi-final penalty shootout miss against Everton at Wembley, which many considered the ultimate tipping point of what has so far been an unsuccessful switch from Spurs.

The Analysis

Whilst it’s true that Dimitar Berbatov didn’t set the world alight with his performances at Man United last season I don’t think he can be branded as a flop or a failure, after all he did help the club to a Premier League title and a Champions League final but this source believes he may be sacrificed to bring in Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero.

The Atletico Madrid man is having a hell of a lot of praise heaped on him and rightly so but he isn’t quite the finished article yet and his diving antics will surely make the Premier League miss Cristiano Ronaldo, here is an example of the Argentine’s ability to play act CLICK HERE.

Having failed to land Benzema Sir Alex is still searching for another striker and Aguero seems very high up on his list but he will surely baulk at paying the kind of price that the La Liga side are apparently hoping for!

The Likelihood

Aguero to Man United in swap deal: I think not!
