Contrary to some reports, Dimitar Berbatov is focused on staying at Manchester United and winning his way back into the side.

It has been claimed the Bulgarian is looking to force a January exit in order to find more regular first-team opportunities away from Old Trafford.

Paris Saint-Germain and Valencia have been touted as potential destinations for Berbatov, but the 30-year-old is intent on proving himself at United once more.

"I want to get more chances because I know I can help the team," said Berbatov. "I'll continue to give my best to earn my place in the team."

Berbatov has played only 208 minutes of football for United this term, despite ending least season as the Barclays Premier League champions' top-scorer.

Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck all seemingly feature more prominently in the plans of Sir Alex Ferguson, but Berbatov is not prepared to give up.


Berbatov is currently under self-imposed international retirement, but Bulgarian fans are desperate for the forward to turn out for the national side once again.

However, Berbatov realises that, should he decided to play for Bulgaria again, he must first be appearing regularly for United.

He added: "I can't play for the national team if I'm not playing for my club."
