Bayern Munich manager, Louis van Gaal, has today revealed that he wanted to buy Dimitar Berbatov when he was at Bayer Leverkusen, where he scored an average of 18 goals a season.

“I’ve always liked Berbatov,” said Van Gaal. “I wanted to buy him when I was the coach of Ajax and he was at Bayer Leverkusen. There are a lot of goals being conceded by United but they then score three and are through. They have the spirit to do this and Alex Ferguson has ensured this.”
