Manchester United need to sell Berbatov and buy Villa

It was another shite game for Dimitar Berbatov in a Manchester United shirt as Sir Alex Ferguson’s men could only manage to draw with Blackburn at Ewood Park this afternoon.

Even the most ardent United fan will now admit that Chelsea have one hand on the Premier League title. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are a point ahead with a game in hand and with games running out, it is definitely Chelsea’s to lose.

The absence of Wayne Rooney up front this afternoon undoubtedly cost United. Berbatov was up to his old tricks. Giving out to other team-mates for his own failings, tamely shooting the ball at Paul Robinson and looking as lazy as ever.

There has been much talk in recent days and weeks that Ferguson will make a move for Valencia striker David Villa when the summer transfer window opens and I am sure the large majority of United fans would love to see the Spaniard arrive at Old Trafford.

Villa, 28, would cost United at least £35 million and if you believe what you read in the papers, the Premier League Champions don’t have that kind of money to spend. If they were to sell Berbatov, which I feel Ferguson would love to do, I reckon they would be lucky to get £12 million for him. It’s amazing to think that United coughed up over £30 million to sign Berbatov back in 2008 from Tottenham.
