Berbatov back on Serie A radar

Dimitar Berbatov could be heading to Serie A in January after his agent announced he’ll seek a Fulham exit.

With only two goals this season, the Bulgarian international is prepared to leave Craven Cottage with six months left on his contract.

“I don't usually speculate as nobody knows what will happen in January but what I can tell you is he is not happy at Fulham,” Berbatov’s agent Emil Dantchev told The Mirror newspaper.

“He would like, if possible, to find another option.”

He was signed from Manchester United in August 2012 for €5m after agreeing terms with both Fiorentina and Juventus.

The Viola were famously livid that they had paid for his flight to Florence for a medical, but he never turned up, instead stopping off in Munich and a few hours later announced he’d signed for Fulham.

The 32-year-old had been very close to two Serie A clubs before opting for Fulham, so both Fiorentina and Juventus could be looking for a new centre-forward.

Berbatov has also been linked with Inter and Roma, who are both looking for forwards in the January transfer window due to injuries.

However, his famous turnaround with Fiorentina has tarnished his reputation in Italy and he could well not be wanted.
