Berbatov to depart Man Utd at season's end

The agent of Dimitar Berbatov says his client will leave Manchester United this summer.

The 31-year old Bulgarian star is frustrated by his lack of game time under Sir Alex Ferguson with his representative, Emil Danchev, confirming he will be on his way at the end of the current campaign.

"I had three meetings with Alex Ferguson," Danchev told the Bulgarian media on Sunday.

"We should accept that he'll try to build a team for the next three or four years and Berbatov will not be part of this team. Ferguson wants to change the playing style, to implement more speed. I was pleased with United's position as they said they'll not oppose Berbatov's move in the summer."

It is believed that Berbatov will remain in Europe with a move to another big club with Danchev ruling out the possibility of a lucrative shift to a 'lesser' football nation.

"Dimitar will most probably leave England but he doesn't want to move to the US, Japan, United Arab Emirates or championships like these," the agent added.
