Manchester United Transfer news indicates at a rather surprising development. A former Manchester United striker may dramatically return to the Premier League. This is none other than Dimitar Berbatov.
Sports Nova has reported that the summer transfer window is already over. However, the January transfer window is nearing and there are several free agents available. Rumors have it that Swansea is considering a move for ex-Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United striker Berbatov.
Why Berbatov May Return
Dimitar Berbatov has reportedly caught the eye of Swansea chief Bob Bradley as per Manchester United transfer news. The ex Bulgarian International has been a free agent for quite some time. He left Greek team PAOK in June this year. However, he could make a dramatic EPL return with Swansea.
Berbatov has a good record of 48 goals scored in 78 appearances for his country. He has also had successful stints at Manchester United, Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur. He left for Monaco in the year 2014.
Bradley is reportedly counting on Berbatov’s experience. The striker has already played 229 Premier League matches. He has assisted in 42 goals and scored 94 which is good enough. Berbatov had earlier stated that “when you’ve played in the Premier League you don’t want to play anywhere else”.
He also added that he would “happily play for a team where they use my experience and knowledge”. He also added that he can “help young players develop and make the team stronger”. Swansea has already snagged Athletico Madrid’s Borja Baston and Sevilla’s Fernando Llorente.
However, both the new signings have put up a dismal performance till now. Bradley is looking at Berbatov as a potent alternative. Bradley has stated that he has “met Dimitar a few times”. He has also added that he knows that Berbatov “is anxious to get back into the Premier League”.
Bradley talked of how “his name is included” whenever there were discussions at Swansea. He did not give any specific answer but talked of the “good things” done by Berbatov in the past. Swansea presently lie at 19th in the Premier League table. They will be taking on Dimitar’s ex club Manchester United soon.
Bradley sparked widespread rumors when he said that Berbatov is “on my radar-there are a lot of things on my radar right now”.
