Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has cast doubt over the future of Dimitar Berbatov at the club.

The Bulgarian striker, who claimed last season's Barclays Premier League golden boot alongside Carlos Tevez of Manchester City with 20 goals, has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer.

Berbatov and his agent have constantly denied the speculation, but the Manchester United manager has made headlines with his response to a French TV station when asked about a possible move to Paris St. Germain.

"Yes, he might. That’s possible,” said the Red Devils chief.

Ferguson's comments are in contrast to Manchester United chief executive David Gill, who said over the weekend that the club were keen to keep the forward within their ranks.

"Everyone has been talking about Berbatov from the outside, saying he wants to leave or that we want him to leave, but we don't want him to go. We want him to stay," said Gill.


"He scored 20 goals last season, so there is no desire on our behalf to see him go."

Big spending PSG were linked with an £18 million move for the player as recently as yesterday, but reports that Manchester United will want at least £20 million from the Ligue 1 side.
