Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov took to Facebook last night to publically announce his desire to quit Old Trafford this summer.
The Red Devils’ record signing, who was brought in from Tottenham Hotspur for £30.75 million four years ago, claims he is now available for a cut-price £5 million.
Berbatov’s contract expired at the end of last season but United took out an extra option on his contract, extending his stay in Manchester for another year rather than lose him for a free this summer. Although Sir. Alex Ferguson does want Berbatov off the books and unofficially, the 31-year-old striker is basically transfer listed and available for others.
Berbatov, who will depart to South Africa and China on a pre-season tour this morning (and clearly he doesn’t want to go, which probably fuelled this facebook rant last night) said he really hopes he can find a new club soon;
“The truth is I love this club, but I am not going to be useful to anyone if I am not playing, And I want to play, I want to help.
“But for unknown reasons it’s not going to happen or my chances will be limited, so it’s better for everyone if we say goodbye.
“If not, I am professional and I will keep doing everything I can to help my team whenever I have the opportunity to do so.”
