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.
The Swansea manager last month said, “I saw Dimitar in May at a celebration game for Hristo Stoichkov in Sofia, I’ve met him a few times and I know he is anxious to get back in the Premier League; everyone inside our club knows that.”
Also, reports in Bulgarian media suggest that the 35-year-old striker is keen on returning to the English top flight despite his age. Berbatov is set to visit the Manchester United training ground in Carrington next week in other to train with Jose Mourinho’s men as he prepares for a possible spell with another English club.
It would be recalled that the former Bulgarian international joined Manchester United from Tottenham in the summer of 2008; following the move, Berbatov went on to score an impressive 48 goals in 108 premier league appearance for the red devils.
Berbatov who had since left Old Trafford has gone on to play for Fulham, Monaco, and Greek outfit POAK, reproducing the form that saw Manchester United pay a huge sum of £30.5 million for his services in 2008.
One thing is certain, If Berbatov is to sign for any premier league club in the coming transfer window, he would no doubt bring with him the much need experience and knowledge any team would appreciate.
For now, Berbatov will concentrate on training and try to keep fit while he prepares for a possible interest from any premier league club.
