Spanish club Malaga hopes to snatch Bulgarian forward Dimitar Berbatov by tabling an offer of GBP 22 M to his team Manchester United, according to reports.
This is only the latest in a string of rumors about interest in Berba by a number of European teams, including ones from Germany and Italy, and most lately French Paris Saint-Germain.
Malaga, owned by investors from Qatar, has embarked on a campaign to attract top players and Berbatov is next on their wishlist, according to Caughtoffside.
The Spanish club hopes that a GBP 22 M offer will be attractive for ManUn, which purchased Berbatov from Tottenham Hotspur for close to GBP 31 M in 2008.
Only one year remains from the Bulgarian forward's contract with United. Since some months ago, Berbatov, who was a top scorer in the Premiership last season, has not been on his club's starting team, provoking rumors about his imminent departure.
