Fulham completes signing of Berbatov from United

Dimitar Berbatov has ended his four-year spell at Manchester

United by joining fellow Premier League team Fulham.

The former Bulgaria striker signed a two-year deal Friday to be

reunited with Martin Jol, who was the striker’s coach when both

were at Tottenham in 2006 and ’07. The transfer fee was

undisclosed, with British media saying Berbatov will cost Fulham 4

million pounds ($6.35 million).

Berbatov, who joined United for a club-record fee of around 30

million pounds in 2008, was the Premier League’s top scorer in the

2010-11 season but lost his place in the team last campaign. He

scored 56 goals in 149 appearances for United.

The 31-year-old Berbatov says ”as soon as I was aware of

Fulham’s interest my decision to join was an easy one to

make.”
