Fulham striker has interest from Russia with love.
Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov is being watched by clubs in Russia, and they are reportedly priming themselves to make an offer, Sky Sports understands.
The 32-year-old arrived at Craven Cottage from Manchester United last summer on a two year deal, meaning that at the end of this current campaign he’ll have just one more year to run on his deal.
Zenit St Petersburg have been known admirers for a long time and rumours are that they are keen to revive their interest once the transfer window reopens this summer.
The player’s agent, Emil Danchev, has admitted that a switch to the Russian giants would be an attractive proposition for his client, but had to concede that his future is in Fulham’s hands.
“I have heard of interest in Berbatov from Russian clubs in the past and I still hear of them today,” he said.
“The Russian league is growing seriously and should soon become one of the leading championships in Europe so to play in that country would be interesting.”
“Of course, much will depend on the decision of the Fulham hierarchy but, at the moment, I do not know of any formal offers.”
So far this season Berbatov has scored 13 goals in 28 appearances for the West London side.
