Old Trafford bench warmer on his way to Turkey?
Galatasaray are locked in talks with Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov.
Fanatik says Gala remain keen, but not at the terms demanded by United nor the player.
United are willing to sell Berba in January for £10 million, while the Bulgarian is seeking a multi-season deal worth £5 million-a-year.
Gala have pulled back from negotiations with officials believing the terms too rich for a player over 30 years of age.
By all accounts Dimitar Berbatov is ready to curb his demands in order to secure a move to Turkey as he looks to gain regular first team football after experiencing a frustrating season at the Old Trafford club.
Man United are more than likely to accept an offer of £10m for the 30 year old striker, not least because the Bulgarian’s contract runs out in the summer and he could then leave for nothing.
It’s a sorry situation for the former Tottenham man to find himself in given that last term Berbatov finished the season as the joint top scorer in the Premier League.
Thus far this season he has managed just one Premier League start and is now behind Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck in the Man United pecking order.
