Pari St Germain are preparing a bid for Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov, according to reports.

The Bulgarian international stated at the start of the month that he was keen to stay at Old Trafford and build on his Golden Boot haul next season, but speculation continues to link the player with a move away from the Red Devils.

Former club Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with a move, and now Ligue 1 side PSG are considering a move for the player, according to the Daily Star.

The news comes just days after the agent of the Manchester United forward revealed that a new contract had not been offered to the player, despite Berbatov only having one-year left on his current deal.

"There is no news because we have not heard anything from anyone,” agent Emil Dantchev told

“After we speak to Manchester United, we will know more but now he is very happy to be a Manchester United player."


“Many clubs would be interested in Dimitar but he wants to stay in Manchester and win more trophies. He has a contract and he is not paying attention to the British media.”

Bayern Munich have also been linked with a move for the player, with interest growing from across Europe as Sir Alex Ferguson presumably considers if he should cash-in on the mercurial 30-year-old.

The rapid rise to prominence of Javier Hernandez at the club saw Berbatov lose his place in the starting line-up, and was also on the bench for the Champions League final between Manchester United and Barcelona.

Signed for £30.75 million, should Berbatov leave this summer it would bring to an end three successful years with Manchester United.
