Juventus, Genoa lure Man U’s fed-up striker BerbatovMarch 19th, 2011 - 2:14 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 19 (ANI): Italian clubs Juventus and Genoa want to lure Manchetser United fed-up striker Dimitar Berbatov, who is frustrated at being sat on the bench in favour of Javier Hernandez.
The Italian clubs have spoken to Berbatov’s agent.
Despite being United’s 20-goal top scorer, Berbatov was unused substitute in Tuesday’s Champions League win over Marseille.
United boss Alex Ferguson spotted his sulk and was caught on camera nudging No 2 Mike Phelan and pointing and laughing.
Berbatov cost United a club record 30.75 million pounds when he was signed from Tottenham in 2008.
His contract ends in summer of 2012 and Genoa are ready to pay nine million pounds. (ANI)
