Dimitar Berbatov And Wes Brown To Join Indian Side Kerala Blasters

share on:

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov is closing on a move to Indian Super League club Kerala Blasters.

Two-time Premier League winner has not played competitive football in over a year, having last turned out for Greek side PAOK in the 2015/16 season.

A transfer to Kerala would see Dimitar Berbatov reunite with two former United colleagues, manager Rene Meulensteen and defender Wes Brown, who joined the club on Tuesday.

Meulensteen spent six years as first team coach at Manchester United from 2007 to 2013, helping to guide Sir Alex Ferguson’s team to three Premier League titles in that time.

Berbatov would also come up against former Spurs team-mate Robbie Keane in the fourth edition of the Indian Super League.

While Brown’s move to India has been confirmed, Bulgarian legend Berbatov’s has not, though it is expected he will be reunited with his ex-Manchester team and coach.

The 36-year-old striker spent last season with the Greek side PAOK but left in 2016 eyeing a return to England’s top-tier.

Despite 94 total Premier League goals during spells with United, Tottenham and Fulham, the veteran forward’s hope to return was quashed after talks with Sunderland fell through.

If Berbatov is to follow his ex-United colleagues to India, the trio look set to make their debut season together in the league’s fourth year of existence.
