Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbabtov is set to be offered a new deal with the 18-time Barclays Premier League champions after his best season yet in a United shirt.
The Bulgarian has scored 20 goals so far this season for the Old Trafford club, his best return since joining from Tottenham Hotsphur in 2008.
The impact of the 30-year-old, in the wake of Wayne Rooney's indifferent form, has been vital as The Red Devils set the pace at the top of the Barclays Premier League.
As a result United are still fighting for three trophies and Sir Alex Ferguson will reward the forward with a 12-month extension to his current deal, which is due to expire in 2012.
Berbatov's form in a United shirt has not only been devastating, but also record breaking.
Not only is he the leading scorer in the Barclays Premier League, ahead of former United man Carlos Tevez, he has also become the first non-English player to score five league goals in one game and the first United forward, since Ruud Van Nistelrooy, to score three hat-tricks in one season.
