The latest news regarding his return was first released by Sportal. It is understood that he will be training under Jose Mourinho for one week so as to regain his fitness. The Bulgarian will also be keeping a close eye on Mourinho in preparation for life as a coach.
Berbatov was linked with several teams during last summer. But this news regarding the player’s return to England will have alerted several Premier League clubs.
In 2008, Sir Alex Ferguson bought Berbatov from Tottenham Hotspur. Since then, the striker has won plenty of silverware at Old Trafford, including two Premier League titles.
But in 2012, he left the Red Devils to join Fulham, and later, in January 2014, Berbatov moved to France and joined AS Monaco. The experienced forward is now a free agent, after getting released by Greek side PAOK in June 2016.
Berbatov is said to have landed in London on Wednesday, and will later fly to Carrington to train with his former team. He is also expected to watch Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Arsenal on Sunday.
