Old Trafford front man wanted by Ligue 1 side.
PARIS St Germain are preparing a £10m bid for Dimitar Berbatov.
They want the Manchester United striker to be their marquee summer signing. The French club have money to burn after their £150m takeover by Qatar Investments.
It makes them potentially huge spenders in the European transfer market. And Berbatov fits their bill according to new boss Leonardo.
It is understood members of the club’s new Middle East board held a meeting at the weekend with Berbatov’s agent Emile Dantchev.

Bulgarian international Dimitar Berbatov has stated his desire to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his place after seeing Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney strike up a fruitful partnership towards the end of last season, but is reportedly interested in the chance of a lucrative move, and at 30 years of age it may be his last, for the former Tottenham man.
Berbatov finished joint top scorer in the Premier League last term despite only starting 24 matches but missed out on even a spot on the bench for the 2011 Champions League Final against Barcelona, a decision that some sections of the media reportedly greatly angered the striker.
PSG will be looking to spend big this summer in order to push on towards the top of Ligue 1 after 17 years without a domestic title. Having lured back former player Leonardo from Inter Milan to the Parc des Princes, Berbatov is reported tempted by a move to the Parisian club.
Ferguson would surely not stand in the way of such a move given that he has offered Michael Owen a new contract and has the returning youngster Danny Welbeck to call upon as striking options.
