Former Manchester United star Dimitar Berbatov has revealed that he remains open to the possibility of making a return to the Premier League. 

Dimitar Berbatov arrived in England back in 2006, joining Tottenham Hotspur from Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen. He signed for the London club for a fee of €16 million, which made him the most expensive Bulgarian footballer of all time.

The striker spent two seasons with Spurs, before eventually making a big move to Manchester United in 2008. With the Red Devils, Berbatov managed to win 2 Premier League titles, 2 Community Shields, a League Cup, a FIFA Club World Cup, and also a Premier League Golden Boot.

He left the Old Trafford club in 2012 to play for Fulham for two seasons, following which he transferred away from England to join French outfit AS Monaco.

And now, the decorated striker, who has been without a club since he parted ways with Greek club PAOK this summer, has revealed that he would jump at the chance of returning to the Premier League.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live Sport, Berbatov stated: “Hopefully I will find a team soon. In football, you can either play or not. It is not about age. Hopefully you will see me on the pitch soon.

“I would like to come to England. When you’ve played in the Premier League you don’t want to play anywhere else. Hopefully – it would be great for me.

“Age doesn’t matter in football,” the 35-year-old added. “For example, Totti is still playing at 40. Ryan Giggs was still playing when I was at Man U. I want to still play because it’s a love affair.

“In this stage of my career I know where I am – I would happily play for a team where they use my experience and my knowledge. I can help young players develop and make the team stronger. In the end it’s all about someone wanting me to come and play.”
