Dimitar Berbatov could soon be calling time on his Manchester United career if the club accept an offer from Italian side Fiorentina.

The Daily Mirror has reported that representatives of Berbatov are currently in talks with Fiorentina over a proposed move before the transfer window shuts and he is forced to remain at the club until at least January.

Berbatov has seen his chances of playing become even more limited after the arrival of Robin van Persie and he is now hoping that Sir Alex Ferguson allows him to leave the club.

Ferguson certainly has plenty of options in attack after the arrival of Van Persie added to the existing options of Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck.

Now it seems that Berbatov has decided to take matters into his own hands, according to the Mirror, he has pleaded his case to Ferguson and wants the manager to accept a £3million offer from Fiorentina.

The Serie A side are willing to offer the striker a two-year deal that would give the 31-year-old a chance to resurrect a career which has stalled at Manchester United.

Berbatov was the joint top scorer in the Premier League two seasons ago, but last year was forced to sit on the bench for the vast majority of the last campaign as he made just 12 league appearances.

The forward has just one year remaining on his contract at Old Trafford and could leave on a free next summer when United would make a huge loss having paid £30million for Berbatov back in the summer of 2008.

"I want to play, I want to help, but for unknown reasons it's not going to happen," Berbatov revealed to the BBC last month.

"So it's better for everyone if we say goodbye. If not, I am professional and I will keep doing everything I can to help my team and my teammates, whenever I have the opportunity to do so."
