Dimitar Berbatov's agent is facing a demand to repay Fiorentina money they spent in trying to secure the striker's signature this summer.


Get caught up with all the movers and shakers from this past summer's transfer window.

The Viola were still fuming on Wednesday after being snubbed by Berbatov during the transfer window, which saw the 31-year-old join Fulham from Manchester United.

The Serie A side claimed last week they had paid for Berbatov and his agent to fly to Italy on transfer deadline day before being gazumped, declaring their actions proved the player was not worthy to wear the club's shirt.

Fiorentina sporting director Daniel Prade has revealed he will pursue Emil Dantchev for the cost of the duo's airline tickets and other expenses.

"Berbatov? The final lines of our press statement are just my thoughts," Prade told Radio Blu.

"I'm glad that he did not arrive. We will request to his agent the money we paid for their flight to come to Florence, 100%."
