Berbatov reveals Tottenham contract talks

The 26-year-old Bulgarian's agent Emil Dantchev has revealed renewed interest in his player from Manchester United.

But the Spurs striker insisted: "I chose to join Tottenham last season, now I'm staying at the club through my own free will. At least for now.

"There has been a lot of speculation but all I can say is the club's board have decided to raise my salary."

Berbatov joined Tottenham from German side Bayer Leverkusen in May 2006 and scored 12 league goals last season.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a known admirer of the big forward and did make a tentative inquiry for the player earlier in the summer.

Berbatov told Bulgarian Football Weekly : "No one said that United didn't have interest in me and my price in general but it has to be clear that there will not be a move for now."
