Dimitar Berbatov’s agent has said the Manchester United striker’s future “will be decided over the next few days”, with a move to Fiorentina likely.
Berbatov, 31, has been pushed further down the pecking order at Old Trafford after the arrival of Robin van Persie, and has been strongly linked with a move to the peninsula.
Those rumours intensified when the Viola president Andrea Della Valle told journalists earlier this week that he would sign a top class striker “whose name begins with the letter B”.
Marco Borriello was another name to be mentioned – but Berbatov’s agent Emil Dantchev refused to either confirm or deny interest in his client, telling Il Sussidiario: “I don’t know what news is coming from the papers, but I always try not to give them excessive credence.
“Are Fiorentina and Inter looking at him? I don’t know, and if you want to know that then you had better ask them. The only thing I feel ready to say right now is that his future will be decided over the next few days.”
