FORMER Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has revealed he would still leave Tottenham for the Red Devils if he was playing for Spurs today.
The 38-year-old left the North London club in 2008 as he moved up north to sign for United, where he would go on to win two Premier League titles.
And imagining himself as a player for Spurs in their current team, with their new stadium and Mauricio Pochettino at the helm, he has insisted he would still leave.
While he has also declared that Poch should move to Old Trafford if he wants to test himself at the highest stage.
He told the Daily Mail: “It is still Manchester United,’ he says, hinting at what is to follow. ‘It is still the badge, the history, the great players of their past, Old Trafford, the pulling power they have.
“Okay, you will be like, ‘Wait a minute, Spurs are playing in the Champions League, a new stadium, great training ground, better players’. But, in the end, I would choose United.’
Before he joked: “They both need to call me back! But United will be fine. They are not in a good way, but will they be winning trophies in five years?
“Yes. That is why I signed, and that is why I would follow that intuition even today.”

Speaking of the ex-Southampton gaffer, the Bulgarian added: “Sometimes, you need to get out of your comfort zone, even if you’re afraid of the consequences.
“You need to do that to test yourself. And Pochettino could be a United manager.”
Berbatov also recently advised United against selling Paul Pogba in the summer, claiming it would be a huge mistake.
