Galatasaray, Anzhi ready to take Berbatov off Man Utd hands

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to jettison Dimitar Berbatov.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to jettison Dimitar Berbatov.

The Mirror says Berbatov could be the most high-profile casualty as Sir Alex Ferguson takes the axe to his Carling Cup flops.

Berbatov’s first-team prospects look even bleaker after his part in Manchester United’s humiliation against Championship side Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

The Bulgarian, who cost £30million but now finds himself vying with Michael Owen for fourth place in the strikers' pecking order at United, was totally anonymous before coming off with a foot injury.

Last season’s joint-top Premier League scorer will struggle to even make the bench when he recovers and could be off in January if Fergie decides to offload him. Galatasaray of Turkey and Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala are both keen on him.
