Dimitar Berbatov ‘would absolutely take’ Sergio Aguero at Manchester United

3 min read

Sergio Aguero certainly wouldn’t be the first player to play for both Manchester United and Manchester City.

It was announced this week that Aguero would leave City at the end of the season when his current deal expires, and speculation has already begun over where his next destination might be.

While the early indications suggest Barcelona are favourites for his signature this summer, United have been linked with a shock move for the City legend too.

The MEN revealed last month that United have settled on Erling Haaland as their priority in the transfer window, although if that move was eventually not deemed feasible, they could do worse business than signing Aguero on a free.

And ex Old Trafford favourite Dimitar Berbatov has taken that stance, revealing to Betfair he “would absolutely take” Aguero at Old Trafford.

“There’s a lot of speculation about where he will go at the end of the season, I would absolutely take him at Manchester United,” Berbatov said. “Despite his connection to City and everything he has done there he is a player you cannot hate.

“He’s still only 32-years-old and a player like Aguero can still do a lot of damage for a club. He is still capable of scoring goals.

“He knows how to save his strength, he knows how and when to attack and when to wait for the right moment, look at how Cavani and Ibrahimovic are performing, they are still making a big impact.

“I think Aguero would be a good addition to United but I can’t see it happening because of his loyalty to City.”

Aguero’s crowning moment with United’s bitter rivals was arguably his late dramatic goal against QPR, and Berbatov was on the bench at the Stadium of Light when the news filtered through from the Etihad.

He added: “Unfortunately for me, and everyone connected to Manchester United, he [Aguero] stopped us from winning the title in 2012. I was there at the side of the pitch and we were all waiting for the City game to finish.”

“I remember feeling angry, sad and frustrated because we didn’t do enough to win it. I remember all of us were just staring into space wondering what if. I recall getting onto the bus after that game to go home and that was the first time we all saw the goal.

“At the time it was a terrible feeling but it’s one of those moments that can only happen in English football.”
