It was reported back in May that Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov had suggested he must leave Man United this summer after starting only FIVE games last season.
Berbatov was quoted as saying:
“My time at United is running out, I no longer feel like a valuable part of this team. I think I did well in the few opportunities that I received. I am a little frustrated by the way this happened, I do not think I deserved it.
But I have dignity and I stopped going to such meetings, it is clear that I’m leaving United. It’s obvious that I have to leave. I’m looking for a new place now. I know I can still play at the highest level.
Berbatov also insisted he would not follow the former United striker Carlos Tevez by moving to Manchester City.
I would never join Man City, I am a loyal person after all,” he said. “I had the opportunity to sign for City in the past but I chose United.”
He Also stated Sir Alex Ferguson did not make good on his promises after United decided to take up Berbatov’s one-year contract extension.
“We talked 10 times, he told me there would be a place for me but I stayed on the bench.” He told the Sun.
Since then it seems all news has gone quiet on the Berbatov front but now I wonder if the Bulgarian would be a viable option for Chelsea.
With the departure of Didier Drogba and the indifferent form of Romelu Lukaku Chelsea are in need of a back up striker to new no.1 forward Fernando Torres.
Dimitar Berbatov is full of Premier League and Champions League experience and is still full of quality despite entering his twilight years. Berbatov is capable of scoring goals at any level and stated he still wants to remain at the highest level which surely means the Premier League.
Berbatov is available at cut price and would be a perfect understudy to Torres. He would get more first team chances at Chelsea and his physical stature means he would suit Chelsea as the ‘big man’ has always succeeded at Stamford Bridge.
What do you think Chelsea fans, would you welcome Berbatov to the Bridge?
