Ferguson ready to sell Berbatov to fund midfield signing

Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to sacrifice Dimitar Berbatov in order to bring in a midfielder with the proceeds made from the sale of the Bulgarian, Manchester Evening News reports.

The former Tottenham Hotspur striker has failed to break into Manchester United’s starting XI this season, despite netting 20 Premier League goals for the club last term.

Berbatov has become the subject of interest from Turkish club Galatasaray and Russian big spenders Anzhi Makhachkala and United are expecting to receive some large offers in January for the 30-year-old.

The Red Devils are anxious to sell their record £30m signing in January as his contract runs out at the end of the season and the Premier League champions will lose him for free.

Ferguson is hoping to sign a midfielder with the money the club makes from selling the striker with Inter’s Wesley Sneijder, Ajax youngster Christian Eriksen and Juventus playmaker Milos Krasic named as potential targets.
