Even though he is an old bloke now and is not playing anywhere close to as well as he is capable of, Dimitar Berbatov is still wanted in some parts of the world and Australia is one of them.
The sources have provided the information that the Aussie top division team Melbourne Victory is negotiating terms with the former Bulgaria international and his club Salonika and the talks are progressing pretty well.
Berbatov, who has always been an erratic but a highly gifted player, has not been able to sparkle the Greek League in the way he was thought to do when he was brought into the Salonika folds.
Shakhtar Donetsk have managed to profit heavily from the sale of Alex Teixeira, who has joined the Chinese super league in a deal worth around € 50 million.
Backed by rich investors, Jiangsu Suning have been able to make this mega money signing that is expected to fuel more spending from this part of the world in the next few transfer windows.Teixeira has been amongst the transfer rumours for quite a while. Liverpool were seen as his preferred destination, but the Premier League club were not even close to Shakhtar Donetsk’s valuation of the player.
Due to violence in Ukraine, several high profile players have been expressing their desire to leave the country.
It seems Al Ain has had enough now with two of the star signings that they had made last year and the club is all set to get rid of them.
Ryan Babel is one of them yes, while, the other one is Emmanuel Emenike.
Both have proved to be complete failures in the top flight in United Arab Emirates.
Babel, in particular, has been on the target of the club fans, not only for his inability to produce the goals, but, also, for being undisciplined on occasions with his conduct.
Emenike, on the other hand, has been slightly better in comparison, but, he has not been able to do justice to his name either.
The Nigeria international had, however, joined Al Ain on loan only and in all probability, he would go back to his original club which is Fenerbahce.
Dimitar Berbatov has claimed that it is a pleasure to work with manager Igor Tudor at PAOK. The striker moved to the club in the summer on a one-year contract.
At three years of age, he is on his last legs in terms of a football career. However, he is confident of making an impact once again at a new club. Berbatov has been in the limelight for the last decade with clubs like Tottenham and Manchester United forming the base of a very successful career. After having last played for Monaco, the striker has decided to take on a new challenge in the form of PAOK.
Former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov could not seal a return to the Premier League after Aston Villa could not match his wage demands.
The striker was available on a free transfer after being released by Monaco at the end of last season. He has been without a club throughout the summer, but Berbatov was not prepared to drop his wage demands in order to secure a move to Villa. Moving to the Premier League club would have given him the opportunity to be a first choice regular once again since Villa only recently sold Christian Benteke to Liverpool.
Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has admitted that he would consider the probability of returning to the Premier league after having left Monaco following a short spell.
The Bulgarian joined Monaco at a time when they were seemingly on their way towards the top of French football. The scenario, though, has entirely shifted in the last few months, as Monaco have been cutting their budgets to great lengths. It was already a reason behind Radamel Falcao leaving the club on a short-term loan spell to Manchester United. More players are expected to part company with the club in the next few months.
Monaco last made a huge impact in the Champions League 10 years ago when they reached the final of the competition before eventually being beaten by FC Porto.
They are in a position to repeat those achievements as they are very close to reaching the semifinals this time around. Monaco will be up against Juventus in the quarter-finals. This is comparatively a much easier tie for the French club, as they have avoided the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Barcelona. Due to this respect, striker Dimitar Berbatov reckons that the club can start thinking about a semifinal spot this season.
As.Monaco outclassed Arsenal earlier in the month of February as the French side ran right past Arsene Wenger’s men with a scoreboard of 3-1. DimitarBerbatov played a big role in this triumph as he scored a goal.
This match played a big importance for both teams as it was their Champions League last 16 first leg match. The 2nd match is scheduled to take place on March 17 but Arsenal has a big disadvantage as they have fallen behind in the scoreboard by 2 goals.
Berbatov is now being rumored on having an interest in making a return to the Premier League as the result that his team secured when playing against Arsenal has sparked a string of rumors linking the Bulgarian forward with a return to the league where he used to perform in a few years ago.
After having made over 50 appearances as a player of Fulham, Berbatov opted to make a move to As.Monaco. It was a huge change not only in club but also in country and league as Berbatov went from playing in the Premier League to joining the French League.
Dimitar Berbatov did not have any experience playing in the French League prior to joining As.Monaco but it not stop him from making a move to what was a new playing style for the Bulgarian attacker.
The veteran forward and former player of Manchester United has now revealed that it actually wasn’t difficult on making a move to such a different league as he was eager and in search of something new.
Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim says that the fight for the Champions League last 16 qualification will go to the last group match.
Monaco qualified for the Champions League after spending vast sums of money on players like James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao. Even though most of the high-profile signings have departed the club in the summer after budget cuts, they continue to remain in the Champions League group stages. They were given a fair chance of reaching the last 16 due to the group not having many top contenders like the Bayern Munich or Barcelona.
