12 Oct Messi and Ronaldo will battle in this Manchester United team – Berbatov
The former Red Devil considers even the game’s biggest current players will face real trouble scoring to the club now
Dimitar Berbatov considers even Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo would fight to play for the existing Manchester United team.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have left their worst-ever beginning to a Premier League effort and now sit 12th with two wins from their first eight league matches.
Strike is now a vital concern for the Red Devils with all the club discovering the back of the net only twice in the league thus much as Manchester City have scored three times a number.
United have fought to make and convert opportunities in the last third and Berbatov considers even the game’s best would find life difficult when drafted into the negative.
“The chilly transfer window is tough and on the pitch Manchester United are not generating as a team in the present time,” Berbatov composed in his column Betfair.
“It doesn’t matter how great you’re, Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo can go there and they’d have trouble since the team isn’t generating as a team.
“If you market two of your most important strikers that you want to earn at least one, just in case. Everyone can see that Manchester United want a backup, Anthony Martial is hurt and there is not another really powerful proven goalscorer.”
Though adamant playing at Old Trafford will be hard for any player right now, Berbatov has supported the club reported pursuit of Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic.
“They have the ability from the young players but in precisely the exact same time you will need somebody like Mario Mandzukic,” he wrote.
“I believe he’s a very good football participant and he has not played in England but I expect he comes he could straight away get in the rhythm of the Premier League.
“Zlatan Ibrahimovic had been 34 when he signed up for United and that he did not have any issues. Mandzukic is an identical era and that I expect he can have the exact same effect if he signals.
“I think his age is a great thing; Martial, Rashford and Greenwood are young players so that they want that assurance and time that they don’t have to stress and they are able to learn from the experience of Mandzukic.”

Apart from needing reinforcements up front, the Red Devils will also be lacking in the center of the playground, based on Berbatov.
“I enjoy Nemanja Matic as a player but he isn’t getting that time on the pitch he needs, therefore that they are likely not likely to rely on him as far as he needs them to, so for me that they will need to reinforce the midfield,” he continued.
“One or two players, I really don’t understand, they simply require a player which could help them and provide them solidity in deference and imagination moving forward.”
