Dimitar Berbatov would be interested in a move to AC Milan, his agent has admitted, with the Manchester United striker looking at a possible exit from the club as he goes in search of more first team football.
Sir Alex Ferguson fought hard to purchase Berbatov in the 2008 summer, paying £30 million for the star to make the move from a very reluctant Tottenham.
But after Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck stole the spotlight in United's striking line up, Berbatov failed to get the game time that might justify him staying at the club, and this summer an exit is more than likely as he enters the final 12 months of his contract.
Berbatov announced through his Facebook that he would be leaving United if the right offer came along, and after putting a valuation of £5 million over his head, the star's agent claims he would love to make the move to Serie A giants AC Milan.
"I cannot say much but I do say that Berbatov likes Milan and looks good in red and black," Emil Dantchev said, as reported by Yahoo Sport.
"Dimitar would run to AC Milan, because the club have appreciated him for years. They will have to speak with Manchester United and start negotiations."
Turkish side Galatasaray have also expressed an interest in Berbatov, with vice president Refik Arkan revealing the United man's management has spoken to the club.
"We have had discussions with Berbatov's management," he told Radyspor.
"We want to have a world-class striker. Our president also wants this, but the final decision rests with the coach [Fatih Terim]. Berbatov is one of the possibilities."
At £5 million, Berbatov is a bargain considering his potential. Two seasons ago he scored the most goals in the Premier League, and though he was on the outskirts of the United squad this season, he still scored nine goals for the side.
But the striker is clearly hoping that with AC Milan moving on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, there will be space for Berbatov in the line-up, and the possibility of Champions League football.
