During the past few weeks there has been nothing but exit rumors surrounding the Bulgarian striker as he wants to depart from Fulham. He had already made statements concerning his ‘’unhappiness’’ with the Premier League club. However according to the manager of Fulham Rene Meulensteen, he is certain that Berbatov will remain with the team at least until the end of the season and not in January as it was initially believed. "I had a good chat with him; he's not a stranger to me. We know what games we have coming up all the way to January, and he's fully committed to Fulham."
