9 - Dimitar Berbatov Profile
After much speculation, Berbatov completed a move to Manchester United on 1 September 2008 for a fee of around £30.75 million, with Fraizer Campbell joining Tottenham on a season-long loan as part of the deal.This came despite Tottenham accepting a bid for Berbatov from Manchester City on the same day. Berbatov's contract to United is for four years, and he will wear the number 9 shirt previously worn by Louis Saha. Berbatov later insisted he never even considered a move to Manchester City.
Berbatov marked his Manchester United debut with an assist to a Carlos Tévez goal away to Liverpool. He scored his first two goals for Manchester United in their 3–0 win away to Aalborg BK in the Champions League group stage on 30 September 2008. He scored his first league goal, for United, with the third goal in the 4–0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on 18 October 2008. On 17 January 2009, he scored a last-minute goal to secure a 1–0 away win over Bolton Wanderers and help United to the top of the Premier League table for the first time in the season.
