Dimitar Berbatov’s agent says the striker intends to stay at Old Trafford for the rest of his career, reports Goal.com.
Berbatov, 29, has been at United since 2008 and has hit his stride this season after a couple of lukewarm campaigns, with 11 goals in 12 starts so far. Now his agent, Emil Danchev, has stated Berbatov wants to stay at United until he hangs up his boots.
“I’m almost sure he will finish his competitive career with United,” Danchev said. “He is a very balanced person and he knows what is best for him.
“There are different characters at United and there’s big competition too. Berbatov sets an example to everyone in the team.”
Giggs has another year.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Ryan Giggs has another season in him.
Giggs, 37, hinted on Saturday that this might be his last season at Old Trafford. Hamstring trouble has restricted the veteran winger to just 10 appearances this season but Sir Alex does not believe it is not yet time for the curtain to fall on a fantastic career.
“Ryan is unbelievable,” Ferguson told The People. “He’s 37 years of age but his fitness has not changed.
“I think there is another year in him. It is difficult to say at that age because they can hit the buffers just like that.
“Ryan will want to carry on because he knows he is fit enough.”
Hargreaves to leave.
Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves will be let go at the end of the season, reports the Sunday Mirror.
The England international has struggled for fitness during his time at Old Trafford, making just 40 appearances for United since his £17m transfer from Bayern Munich in 2007. United now appear prepared to cut their losses on a player who only has six months of his contract remaining.
Even a pay-as-you-play deal does not appear to interest United, who will instead allow Hargreaves to walk away as a free agent at the end of the season.
