Agent confirms Berbatov set for Manchester United exit this summer

The Bulgarian has fallen behind Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez in the pecking order at Old Trafford and will look for a new club at the end of the season
The agent of Dimitar Berbatov has confirmed the striker is set to leave Manchester United in the summer.

The Bulgarian, who finished as the Premier League's joint top-goalscorer last season, has struggled to gain a first-team berth at Old Trafford this term due to the form of strikers Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez.

And the 31-year-old's representative, Emil Danchev, has now admitted that Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has accepted his wish to leave at the end of the season.

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

"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," Danchev added.

"I was pleased with United's position as they said they'll not oppose Berbatov's move in the summer."

Despite Berbatov's advancing years, Danchev underlined his client's desire to remain in a competitive league.

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