INGS PURSUIT MAKES NO SENSE – BERBATOV

Former Manchester United striker Dmitar Berbatov has questioned the reported news that his former club is interested in a move for Southampton player Danny Ings who has a year left on his current deal with the Saints.

Berbatov talked about Manchester United and the reported interest in Saints striker Ings in a chat with Betfair. Acccording to the Betfair ambassador, the reported interest in Ings makes no sense with the numerous attacking options at the disposal of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the moment. The ex-Spurs and AS Monaco player also said that the recent new deal handed to EdinsonCavani by the Manchester United hierarchy means that the club does not need a new striker like Ings.

Cavani has impressed a lot of present and past Manchester United players including the aforementioned Berbatov since his arrival last summer. Berbatov has been impressed with the impact of the Uruguayan striker and he does not think that the club needs a new striker with the likes of Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford able to deputise for Cavani.

Berbatov said he watched the last game at home to Fulham and he was impressed with the way that Cavani took his goal and that he has proven that he’s a consistent goalscorer in his short time at the club.

Uruguayan international Cavani scored the contender for the goal of the season when he produced an audacious chip to score the opening goal of the game off the assist from Bruno Fernandes who flicked the long kick from Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea into the path of Cavani. The goal was not enough to give the Red Devils victory after Fulham fullback Joe Bryan snatched a point for his team with his late goal as the two teams settled for a 1-1 draw.
