Former Manchester United star , joins Sachin Tendulkar owned Kerala Blasters Manchester United star , joins Sachin Tendulkar owned Kerala Blasters

Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov is reportedly set to join Indian side Kerala Blasters in the Indian Super League.

The Bulgarian, who attained much success during his tenure in the Premier League, notably at Tottenham and United, would be a brilliant capture for the little-known side should the deal come through.

Former Striker Dimitar Berbatov who was world’s most expensive player at one time joined Indian Super League side Kerala Blasters on Wednesday evening. The news was confirmed by Berbatov’s agent who told Reuters that the Bulgarian has signed a one-year deal with the football side owned by Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar

The 36-year-old striker was out of contract for a while and joined the Kerala side as a marquee signing which means that his wages will not come under the salary cap set for every team.

Berbatov is Bulgaria’s all-time leading scorer with 48 goals in 79 matches .

CK Vineeth, the Blasters’ star striker, congratulated Brown on his move to the Kochi side and cheekily compared the Kerala supporters at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi to the fans at Old Trafford, even suggesting that the Kerala crowd is better.

Vineeth tweeted, “Wes Brown if you thought Old Trafford was load, wait until you meet the sea of yellow in Kerala.” Meanwhile, Brown was ecstatic after signing up for the ISL season four as he tweeted, “Hello India, Happy Independence day! I’m coming soon to the exciting Indian Super League to play for Kerala Blasters.”

Renowned Manchester United defender Wes Brown has already been signed by the Blasters on Tuesday. The duo linked together during their time with the Red Devils.

Having secured these players, it will be interesting to see whether the ISL will attract any more popular names. Will the crowds of India be treated to the same spectacles that Berbatov entertained the Old Trafford faithful with, having found the back of the net 56 times for the English giants, or will local talents hope to outshine the legends?
