Bendtner has joined Juventus on a season-long loan - even though the Italians admit the Dane was a last resort, says The Sun.
Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta admitted they had been forced to settle for Bendtner, 24.
Marotta said: "He is not the high-profile striker we were hoping to sign, but it's a chance we had to take in a difficult market like this.
"It was an unprofessional way for Berbatov to behave. He did not make a good impression."
