Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has been linked with a move away from the club for quite some time now, but manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that the club will not be looking to sell the player for a low transfer fee.
Manchester United paid £ 31 million to Tottenham for his services a few years back and it looks like they are not willing to part without receiving some of the money back. Even though the 31-year-old striker will be allowed to leave the club, Sir Alex Ferguson has said that none of the older players like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes will be allowed to leave the club.
Sir Alex Ferguson managed to convince Paul Scholes to come out of retirement at the age of 37. Many thought that the Champions League final appearance last season would be the fitting finale for Paul Scholes to retire, but huge number of injury problems during the middle of the campaign required Sir Alex Ferguson to bring back the veteran.
However, it is thought that Manchester United would be making a number of signings in midfield in order to strengthen this area, which has raised doubts regarding the future of Paul Scholes. Ferguson, however, has said that he wants to keep the older players in order to provide experience to the younger players.
“We won’t be letting him go for nothing. Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs will be here next year and, unless someone makes an offer we want for Berbatov, he will, too,” Ferguson told The People regarding the future of players like Dimitar Berbatov, Paul Scholes, and Ryan Giggs. It looks like just United will not be able to celebrate their 20th Premier league title after they saw Newcastle United lose against Manchester city on Sunday. City can win the title if they win against QPR on the final day of the season.
