'Messi And Ronaldo Would Struggle To Score In Man United' - Dimitar Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov believes Mario Mandzukic could be the answer to Manchester United's problems - but admits they run so deep that even Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo could struggle in this team.
The retired striker, who won two English Premier League titles with United, suggested manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær has not recruited enough attacking options and has a tough few months ahead.

Speaking to Betfair, Berbatov explained:

The winter transfer window is going to be difficult and on the pitch Manchester United aren't producing as a team at the moment.

It doesn't matter how good you are, Messi or Ronaldo could go there and they would have difficulty because the team is not producing.


In an effort to bolster their attack, Manchester United have reportedly had contact recently with Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic and are preparing a bid for the 33-year-old after failing to land his signature in the summer.

The ex United No 9 said: 

When you sell two of your main strikers you need to bring in at least one, just in case.

Everybody can see that that Manchester United need a back up, (Anthony) Martial is injured and there isn't another really strong proven goalscorer. They have the talent in the young players but at the same time you need someone like Mandzukic.

I think he is a really good football player and he hasn't played before in England but I hope if he comes he can straight away get into the rhythm of the Premier League.

Ibrahimovic was 34 years old when he signed for United and he didn't have any problems. Mandzukic is a similar age and hope he could have the same impact if he signs.

I think his age is a good thing, Martial, (Marcus) Rashford and (Mason) Greenwood are all young players so they need that time and assurance that they don't need to worry and they can learn from the experience of Mandzukic.
