Former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurstriker DimitarBerbatov has snubbed a possible return to the Premier League to feature for Watford, according to reports.
The 36-year old is already thinking of his post retirement plans as he ignored a move to Watford for Kerala Blasters.
The Premier League legend would be heading to India later in the year to join former United coach Rene Meulensteen. The seven-time Bulgarian Player of the Year award winner is set to become the third highest earning player in the history of the ISL when he resumes with Kerala.
DimitarBerbatov believes that Manchester United has made a great deal by signing Lukaku from Everton.
He believes that the striker has the necessary qualities to replace Wayne Rooney in the team.
However, he admitted that the departure of Rooney from Manchester United would be a big disadvantage for the team as he was a major influence in the dressing room. He said that the manager would have to find another leader to help the team.
Dimitar Berbatov discloses that he had a conversation with the Black Cats over the possibility of him joining them in the on-going season, but, the conversation didn’t get to a fruitful conclusion.
It’s been about 9 months now that Berbatov is without any club. The previous time he had featured in a top flight fixture was when he was at PAOK which did not give him an extension to his contract post his debut season there.
Since then, there has been a drought of offers. However, that is not pushing Berbatov towards retirement yet. His desire to play is intact and he is just waiting for someone to hand him a contract.
A Spurs fan has reportedly told the BBC that he wants his team to sign DimitarBerbatov to cope with the absence of Harry Kane.
Indeed the England international has been ruled out until the end of the season and Spurs are currently left with only Janssen as a recognized striker.
This is a shame for Tottenham Hotspurs as Harry Kane has been in great form in recent games and they would have been counting on his goals to help them clinch a top four finish that would allow them to qualify for the Champions League.
At the moment Mauricio Pochettino would be relying on Vincent Janssen to score the all important goals.
Former Tottenham and Monaco striker Dimitar Berbatov is set to start training with former employers Manchester United as he considers a return to the league that brought him to the spotlight.
Berbatov who is currently out of contract after leaving POAK in the summer, is heavily linked with a return to Premier League club Swansea after manager Bob Bradly revealed the former United goal poacher is on his radar.
Dimitar Berbatov has come out to throw his full weight behind ace striker, Vincent Janssen.
This comes on the heels of the former AZ Alkmaar player’ inability to find his form and start scoring for the club.
Janssen was recently signed by Tottenham during the transfer window in summer. However the past few weeks have seen Spurs go low on goals with the absence of their star striker, Harry Kane. Berbatov, believes Janssen would soon adapt to playing at Spurs and begin to score soon enough.
It is understood that DimitarBerbatov turned down a potential move to Al Ahly after the club failed to retain the services of manager Martin Jol.
The Dutchman enjoys a special relationship with the Bulgarian striker after having been in charge of the player at two of his previous clubs. Jol was the manager who bought Berbatov to English football when he was at Tottenham. This turned out to be one of the best spells in his career for the Bulgarian striker, who was previously plying his trade in German football.
Crystal Palace is looking for a striker to reinforce their attack.
Indeed the club has lost three strikers during the transfer window and is looking for a quality striker. There was news that Crystal Palace was seeking to sign Benteke from Liverpool during the summer, but they have been discouraged by the asking price. The Crystal Palace board is reported to be looking for cheaper alternatives.
One player that they might consider is DimitarBerbatov. The former Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester United striker is available on a free transfer and will not cost anything. The player has left Greek club PAOK on mutual consent and is currently looking for a club.
Former Red Devils striker Dimitar Berbatov has been linked to a move to two English Championship outfits Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest, according to reports.
The English Championship looks like one cracker with former English Premier League teams in Aston Villa and Newcastle joining but keen on returning to top flight football as quick as possible. There are lot of links that the Bulgarian striker is in talks with two Championship clubs and one is believed to be the Magpies.
There are reports that DimitarBerbatov might be considering a move to the Major League Soccer in the summer.
The former Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester United striker might be considering ending his career in the MLS.
News from Greece indicates that the former Bulgarian international might not renew his contract after its expiration in the summer and will seek a move to a MLS club. So far there is little information about the identity of the club and it is expected that the deal will be carried out in the summer.
Berbatov, who have joined PAOK in September, has only managed to make 14 appearances for the club with most of them coming as a substitute. He has scored 4 goals in the process.
