Berbatov: Man Utd's loss, PSG's gain

United have activated a one-year extension to his contract

Dimitar Berbatov is set to leave Old Trafford despite Manchester United having activated a one-year extension to their record signing’s contract in the past couple of months.
However, they are willing to listen to offers for the £30.75 million Bulgarian forward, 31, and PSG- bossed by ex-Chelsea chief Carlo Ancelotti - are leading the chase, according to The Sun.
Berbatov’s agent Emil Danchev said: “PSG’s project can really interest him because he wants to play in the Champions League next year.
“Plus, there has never been a Bulgarian player at PSG, so it could be good.”

Danchev confirmed earlier that Berbatov will be leaving at the end of the season.

"I had three meetings with (Manchester United manager) Alex Ferguson. We accept that he is trying to build a new team, change the playing style, introduce more speed," Danchev told Bulgarian Canal 3 television.

"Manchester United's future does not include Berbatov," he added.

Danchev said that the 31-year-old striker will most probably leave England for another top European team but added "there will be no cosmic transfer fees."

Berbatov joined Manchester United from Tottenham Hotspur in 2008.

But he has recently lost his prime spot on the squad and speculation has been rife that he is set to leave the club.

Man United lose Pogba to Juventus

Juventus are on the brink of signing teenage midfielder Paul Pogba from Manchester United, according to reports.

Pogba had been unhappy at Old Trafford and keeping Sir Alex Ferguson in suspense for several months on extending his deal with his current contract set to expire this summer.

He has finally decided against continuing at Manchester United.

Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has claimed the Serie A champions discussions are in the advanced stages, with Juve waiting on an answer from the 19-year-old.

"We have lured him away from Manchester United," he told Corriere dello Sport.

"We respected the rules. Pogba, for his own reasons, didn't intend to renew. We informed the club and we are now waiting for an answer. Talks are well advanced."

Juventus have also been linked with moves for Manchester City youngster Mario Balotelli and Napoli's Edinson Cavani this summer, but Marotta has played down such reports.

"We have never thought about Balotelli. He doesn't fit the profile we are looking at, a profile which isn't based solely on technical ability," he added.

"Cavani? You always have to consider the wishes of the clubs which own the players."
