Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed last month that Manchester United would trigger a clause to extend Dimitar Berbatov's contract by another year.

Berbatov is the club's record-signing, having arrived from Tottenham Hotspur in September 2008 for a fee of £30.75 million. With such a high fee came high expectations.

However, the Bulgarian striker still has plenty to offer, and United are right to hold on to last season's top scorer. Although he is significantly less involved this season, each member of the squad has an important role to play, and Berbatov is no exception.
