It seems like an improbable transfer but that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. While Manchester United and Liverpool are typically loathe to do business, Berbatov to Liverpool might well suit both parties.
Despite his obvious talent and excellent strike rate, the Bulgarian has never cemented himself as a fans favourite and has become increasingly marginalised in the last year of his Old Trafford career. He finished up as joint top scorer in the League last season and has an impressive 49 goals in 109 appearances for Manchester United.
The main reasons cited for his fall from grace are that he slows the game down and doesn’t score in the biggest ties. Manchester United are now seemingly obsessed with packing their team full of speed demons and Berbs doesn’t fit the bill.
But Liverpool need quality additions and a transfer to Anfield may appeal to him so that he can reestablish himself with another North West giant. It’s clear that he needs a change of scenery and a link up with Luis Suarez could pay handsome generate a blinding combination of speed, finesse and one touch magic up front.
In short, Liverpool could get a class player and seasoned international for as little as £8-10m. Worth a punt? What do you think?
