Dimitar Berbatov, the Bulgarian Manchester star, has declared he will not leave Manchester United for anything during the upcoming transfer window, despite a growing number of reports saying his time at Old Trafford is over.

"I have one year left on my contract and I am not going anywhere. We won our 19th title this season, it is time for the 20th. That is my plan," the striker told the Bulgarian Nova Sport TV.

"I am probably the happiest among my teammates, because I became the top goalscorer and we won the title...The winning of our 19th title was fantastic," he said.

Berbatov ended Sunday his best season with Manchester United and with Premiership's "golden boot" title. With 20 goals, Berbatov ended up tied with Carlos Tevez from Manchester City.

As reports said the Bulgarian forward and his club could not reach an agreement to extend their contract beyond this summer, rumors were spread he is on his way to be transferred out.  Recently, it was stated that Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is assessing a move for former fans' favourite in a move which could cost upwards of USD 25 M.
