Ferguson ‘wants Berbatov out and Benzema in’

It’s the news many Man Utd fans have been longing for, and it’s got nothing to do with Gary Neville promising to shave off his little moustache. No, according to the Sun, Sir Alex Ferguson has reached the end of his tether as far as Dimitar Berbatov is concerned and will offload the striker at the end of the season.

Berbatov joined United from Spurs in September 2008 in a £30.75m deal, but the 29-year-old has since failed to live up to expectations. Such is Ferguson’s lack of faith in Berbatov, reports the Sun, that against Bayern Munich last week he went with a crocked Wayne Rooney rather than risk his bungling Bulgarian. Berbatov has started the last two league games for United – the defeat to Chelsea and Sunday’s goalless draw with Blackburn – but hasn’t come close to finding the net.

The Sun says that Fergie will show Berbatov the door and then leave it open in the hope that Karim Benzema might choose to wander in. Even though, as reported by The First Post yesterday, the Real Madrid frontman has pledged his loyalty to his Spanish employers in a recent interview, Ferguson remains hopeful that he can entice the 22-year-old Frenchman to Old Trafford.

Allegedly the United boss has put aside £25m for Benzema, £10m less than Real gave Lyon last year for his services.
