Sir Alex Ferguson will not dump his £30million striker Dimitar Berbatov despite another disappointing season.
The 29-year-old, the all-time leading scorer for Bulgaria, has divided opinion among United fans.
His critics question his attitude and insist he has not justified the United manager's outlay that brought him from Tottenham two years ago.
He managed only 12 goals this season in 32 games and has scored only 21 times in total in the Premier League during his United career.
But his fans, including Ferguson, insist there are few better touch players around the area.
'He is a very talented player and has a future at Manchester United,' said Ferguson.
