Berbatov reveals the best player to play as number 9 for Manchester United

Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has revealed his ideal front three for the club.

Anthony Martial has been the preferred player in the middle for Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, while Marcus Rashford plays down the left side.

But according to Bulgarian legend, Berbatov, it would be great to see Cavani add more goals to the one he has at United already, and that can only happen if he gets to play as a central striker.

He told BetFair, “I want the big Uruguayan to score more for United, after getting his first against Everton a couple of weeks ago, but to do that he needs to play more minutes.

“I want to see Cavani play down the middle, with Anthony Martial on the left and Marcus Rashford to the right. When he has come on, Cavani has looked sharp so far for United and made some excellent runs.

He added, “At 33, he’s in great shape and, with young guys around him, he could be lethal for United. Saturday’s home match against struggling West Brom would be a perfect opportunity for Solskjaer to play Cavani in the centre of the United attack.”

Cavani is yet to make his first start for United, despite playing as a substitute twice in the Premier League, including against Everton, where he grabbed his first goal.

With his experience, he could be a real gem at United, especially if he’s allowed to start more like Berbatov suggests.
