Berbatov vows to stay with Red Devils

Dimitar Berbatov has no intention of quitting Manchester United this summer.

Berbatov did not make the impact most United fans were expecting following his club record ¦pound;30.75million arrival from Tottenham last summer.

But his agent Emil Dantchev told Dnevnik: "Despite speculation that he may leave, I want to declare that Dimitar will play at Manchester United next season."

The Bulgarian was left out of Sir Alex Ferguson's starting line-up for a series of key games at the end of last season, including the Champions League final and failed to have any impact when he was introduced as a substitute against Barcelona.

It led to increased speculation Ferguson might look to cut his losses on Berbatov and accept, like Juan Sebastian Veron, the player's economical style was not in keeping with the rest of United's make-up.

However, Berbatov intends to remain a Red Devil, with Dantchev confirming his commitment to the Old Trafford cause.

"There is no desire from the management for any separation," he added. "He will stay and we hope that he will win what he missed out on this year."

If Berbatov is set to stay, it looks increasingly likely Carlos Tevez will be leaving, quite possibly for Manchester City.

United chief executive David Gill was intending to have one final go at talking the Tevez camp into accepting their offer for a player, whose two-year loan has come to an end amid much disgruntlement from the Argentina star, who has been frustrated at a perceived lack of appearances.

However, speculation suggests Tevez has opted to join City, who have already signed Gareth Barry for ¦pound;12million, although there has been no confirmation from any party.
