Dimitar Berbatov: 5 Reasons He Is the Most Undervalued Player in England

After a disappointing end to the 2010-11 campaign, Manchester United's Dimitar Berbatov has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

The Bulgarian striker became manager Sir Alex Ferguson's third-choice striker towards the end of the season, behind the exciting duo of Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney. United's Mexican sensation and English talisman formed a lethal partnership, and look to be Ferguson's first-choice strikers next year as well.

Berbatov came to United with high expectations, after the Red Devils shelled out a club-record £30.75 million for the striker.

Although the Bulgarian has shown glimpses of absolute brilliance, he has not fit into Ferguson's counter-attacking system. The United No. 9 has been criticized for his lazy style of play, and tendency to drift out of big matches.

The high-profile striker has not been happy with his lack of playing time. Towards the latter half of the campaign, the Bulgarian became a squad player, rarely seeing action in significant fixtures.

After failing to make the substitute's bench for the UEFA Champions League Final, Berbatov has been linked with a return to Tottenham and a move to French club PSG. The Bulgarian striker's market value has been set around £15 million, half of his transfer fee in 2008.

The United frontman has the talent to start for any of Europe's elite clubs, and would be a steal at his current value.

Although the 30-year-old Berbatov is no longer in his prime, the United striker is still the most undervalued player in England.
