Sofia:

Manchester United's Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov will leave the club at the end of this season to play elsewhere in Europe, his agent Emil Danchev said on Sunday.

"I had three meetings with (Manchester United manager) Alex Ferguson. We accept that he is trying to build a new team, change the playing style, introduce more speed," Danchev told Bulgarian Canal 3 television.

"Manchester United's future does not include Berbatov," he added.

Danchev said that the 31-year-old striker will most probably leave England for another top European team but added "there will be no cosmic transfer fees."

He said Manchester United would not oppose Berbatov's move in the summer even if they chose to extend his contract by an extra year.

Berbatov joined Manchester United from Tottenham Hotspur in 2008.

But he has recently lost his prime spot on the squad and speculation has been rife that he is set to leave the club.
