Fraizer Campbell role in Dimitar Berbatov’s transfer to Man Utd


As our former forward tells the story, he was waiting to tie up a deal to join Steve Bruce’s Wigan, when Sir Alex called.

“It was the international break, so I was with the England Under-20s or Under-21s, I know I’m going on loan, and I’m sat with Steve Bruce, he was at Wigan at the time,” Campbell explains in the new episode of the UTD Podcast.

“So, I’m going on loan to Wigan, just speaking to the people and waiting for the faxes to come through so I could sign. 

“It’s getting later, waiting for this fax to come through and I get a call from a withheld number, so I was like hello? 

“And [Sir Alex says:]’ oh, Fraizer, it’s Sir Alex here. I’m going to ring you back in five minutes and you’re going to need to give me your answer, but I’ve got a deal for Berbatov going through, it’s 30 million pounds, it’s only going to go through if you agree to go there on loan. So, I’m going to ring you back in three or four minutes with your decision. Speak to you in minute.’

“And that was it.”
