Dimitar Berbatov believes it would be "better for everyone" if he left Manchester United this summer.
Berbatov's four-year stay at Old Trafford looks to be coming to a close after he found himself outside manager Sir Alex Ferguson's first-team plans last season.
The 31-year-old managed just 12 league appearances last term, scoring seven goals, a year after he was the Barclays Premier League's equal top-scorer.
Berbatov has now hinted he had given up hope of remaining at United, despite admitting he would like to see out his the final year of his deal.
He wrote on his official Facebook page: "The truth is, I love this club, but I am not going to be useful to anyone if I am not playing. And I want to play, I want to help. But for unknown reasons it's not going to happen.
"So it's better for everyone if we say goodbye. If not, I am professional and I will keep doing everything I can to help my team and my teammates, whenever I have the opportunity to do so."
