Berbatov: I Told Man City To “F*** Off” When They Tried To Sign Me

Berbatov

Manchester United fan favourite Dimitar Berbatov has revealed he told Man City to “f*** off” when they tried to sign him before he made his move to Old Trafford.

Berbatov completed his £30million switch from Tottenham Hotspur to United on transfer deadline day in the summer of 2008 and went on to achieve great success at the club.

It could have been a lot different, however, as on the other side of Manchester on the same day City had just smashed their transfer record to sign Robinho after being taken over by Sheikh Mansour.

Berbatov claims that the newly minted City attempted to hijack the deal at the last moment to get Berbatov in blue instead of red but the striker only had his eyes on one move.

“Well it was close and not close,” the Bulgarian told Stephen Howson.

“Because my agent told me they are coming for me and they want to sign me.

“And I said okay, thank you, now f*** off.”

Berbatov went on to spend four years at United, winning three Premier Leagues, two League Cups, a Club World Cup and a golden boot, while scoring 56 goals and adding 27 assists in 149 appearances.

The now retired striker went on to explain why he was adamant on moving to United rather than City.

“Manchester United are history. The manager, the titles, the players, the stadium, everything.

“This is what I wanted because sometimes you are getting in love with the history of something, with the past, you say I want to be a part of the futute.

“And I still think it was the right choice for me to do and I will never regret it because it was something magical.”

In September, Lionel Messi won that award in the fourth edition of the Best Fifa Football Awards, set up after football’s world governing body ended its association with the Ballon d’Or.

Meanwhile, Uefa’s Player of the Year award has been going since 1998 and was previously called Uefa Club Footballer of the Year (1998-2010) and Uefa Best Player in Europe (2011-16).

Cristiano Ronaldo Makes More Money On Instagram Than Playing For Juventus : New Report

Published

Cristiano Ronaldo

Fresh reports and data have confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo apparently earns more from Instagram than he does from playing soccer for Juventus.

The 34-year-old pockets an annual $47.8 million from paid Instagram posts, according to a study by social media firm Hopper HQ on Buzz Bingo. In contrast, his salary at Juventus is reportedly $34 million, according to Goal.com.

Ronaldo’s reported income from Instagram makes him the platform’s highest earner, ahead of Lionel Messi and Kylie Jenner.

Receiving a reported average of $975,000 per advertised post, Ronaldo’s Instagram earnings far eclipse the world’s biggest celebrities, including Kylie Jenner, Selena Gomez, and Emily Ratajkowski. He also beats footballing rival Lionel Messi, who is said to have earned less than half of Ronaldo’s total with $23.3 million.

Amongst the brands Ronaldo has represented on Instagram are Clear Haircare, Nike Football, and Six Pad Europe.

“Ronaldo is the most followed human on Instagram (with 186 million followers) so companies are paying almost $1 million for posts to access his insane reach.

Due to his status as a celebrity and football star, his earnings from Instagram break away from typical influencer partnerships, as many of his promotional posts will be part of wider sponsorship deals, such as Nike.

You only need to go on his Instagram to see how many paid partnerships he does outside of the sports market” Hopper HQ marketing executive Nicola Cronin told Business Insider.
