A former Man United striker Dimitar Berbatov has claimed that the Red Devils have now become a laughing stock for selling Belgium international Romelu Lukaku without replacing him.

The Red Devils had sold the Belgium international to Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan last summer, cashing in £73 million and has since discovered his goal scoring form to help his Serie A outfit.

More to his exit is the fact that the Red Devils have not been able to replace him as the current crop of strikers cannot boast of the same goals as the Belgium international.

Dimitar Berbatov says Romelu Lukaku is now laughing at the Red Devils for what he described as bad business for the club because he has gone to score 38 goals for Inter Milan and already has three on the books this term which o Man United striker can boast of.

The former Man United striker claims the Red Devils need goal scorers that can guarantee between 30, 20, or 25 goals in a season for the club.

Meanwhile, there is an attempt to make it better with the Red Devils believed to have had an agreement with Uruguay striker Edison Cavani on a two-year deal. The striker is now a free player and expected to hold medicals on Sunday.
