Fulham’s problems continue to escalade as their coach Martin Jol was sacked only a few days ago and Rene Meulensteen is now the man in charge to lead the Premier League side away from the relegation zone.
But Fulham’s Dimitar Berbatov has recently stated his desire to leave the club. The former Manchester United player has a contract that expires in 6 months but according to his agent Emil Dantchev he wants to leave the club in January.
‘I don’t usually speculate as nobody knows what will happen in January but what I can tell you is he (Berbatov) is not happy at Fulham,’ Dantchev told Press Association Sport.
‘He would like, if possible, to find another option.’
‘I cannot comment (on whether there has been any approach) but the priority is to find a solution to stay in England,’ he said. The latest william hill football betting online makes Berbatov odds-on to move on in January.
The 32 years old forward has only managed to score 1 goal in this season. This was against Crystal Palace back in October. His only other goal came in a Capital One Cup tie against Everton in September. Which is a significant decline considering that he scored 15 goals in his debut season with Fulham.
The Turkish side Trabzonspor is one of the clubs that have already shown interest in snatching Berbatov and this might just be the best chance they get on actually signing him.
Club president Ibrahim Haciosmanoglu said last week: “Berbatov has been on our agenda. We want better and better quality and are endeavoring to add that to our squad.”
Berbatov certainly feels like he can do better in another club even at his age, it does seem as he is being restricted in Fulham in some way or another which is why he wants to make a move away from the Premier League team.
