Fiorentina have approached Manchester United for striker Dimitar Berbatov. United are desperate to find a buyer for Berbatov following the arrival of Robin van Persie from Arsenal.

Talks with Zenit St Petersburg have stalled and Gazzetta dello Sport says now Fiorentina have come forward to register their interest in the Bulgarian.

The Viola hope to do business for around £4 million, while United have put Berbatov up for sale at £5 million.
