Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov believes it would be in the interest of all concerned if he was allowed to leave the club this summer, BBC
Berbatov made only 21 appearances for United last season, starting just five times in the Premier League, but United exercised an option to extend his contract for a further year. That is despite the Bulgarian dropping to fourth choice in the United pecking order, behind Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez.
Sir Alex Ferguson revealed in March that Berbatov could be on the move this summer after admitting the 31-year-old was unhappy with his bit-part role, but thus far there has been little sign of the former Tottenham Hotspur forward leaving Old Trafford.
The BBC notes that Berbatov has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe but a move has yet to come to fruition, leaving Berbatov to make a plaintive appeal on his personal website. Berbatov wrote: “I love this club, but I am not going to be useful to anyone if I am not playing. I want to play, I want to help, but for unknown reasons it’s not going to happen.
“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 and my teammates, whenever I have the opportunity to do so.”
