Dimitar Berbatov will leave Manchester United this summer

This season is perhaps going to be the last season for the Bulgarian footballer, Dimitar Berbatov, in the Manchester United football club. Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has confirmed that Berbatov will finish his relationship with his present club in the summer.

The record signing player of the Manchester United has taken this decision after not finding his place into the first-team football. Ferguson also said that it is also difficult for him to guarantee that he would be selected in the first team.

Before Manchester United going to take on Athletic Bilbao in the UEFA Europa League, Ferguson revealed that he is ready to offload the striker.

His relationship with the club turned into worse after being left out of the squad against Barcelona last season.

Dimitar Berbatov moved to Old Trafford from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2008 for £30.75 million and became United’s most expensive signing player till date. His four-year contract with the club will come to an end in the summer. In his 147-appearance, he has scored 56 goals in all competitions. He became the 50th United player to score 50 goals or more for the club.

It is thought that his contract will be increased one more year in order to avoid letting the player leave. Ferguson is afraid of the fact that the club cannot expect the heavy fee which they paid for the striker.

It is rumored that he was linked with a move to Bayern Munich during the winter transfer window, but Alex Ferguson dismissed the rumors who decided to extend his stay for another year.
