Valencia will make a renewed bid for Manchester United striker Dimitar Bebatov in January, it has been claimed.

According to the Daily Star, the Spanish side had an offer for Berbatov rejected in the summer, but will table £12 million when the transfer window reopens.

Berbatov's exit from Old Trafford appears to be becoming increasingly likely with Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck and Michael Owen all favoured ahead of the Bulgarian.

The 30-year-old is alleged to have previously stated that he would quit United if the Barclays Premier League champions do not offer him a new deal as he enters the final year of his current contract.


United, though, are reported to be considering triggering the option of extending Berbatov's deal by an extra 12 months in order to prevent him leaving the club for nothing next year.

Berbatov joined United from Tottenham for £30 million fin 2009 and finished last season as the Red Devils' top goalscorer.

However, since drifting out of Sir Alex Ferguson's thoughts, Berbatov has been consistently been linked with a move away from the club, with Paris Saint-Germain also said to be vying Valencia for his signature.
