Whilst his agent hinted that he would be open to a move to Anzhi Makhachkala this week, Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that Dimitar Berbatov is going nowhere.
“Dimitar is still in my thoughts,” said Ferguson. “I have read some things but there is absolutely no reason for me to let him go. He is an outstanding footballer and we will give the extra year. It is unfortunate the form of Javier Hernandez over the last year has been outstanding but he plays a great role and he trains well. He has no complaints. The boy is a great professional and we are happy for him to be here. You need a good number of strikers in the modern day. If you look back to 1999, we had four great strikers. They all played their part. That is exactly what will happen today.”
