Dimitar Berbatov will turn down offers from Juventus and Fiorentina to sign for Fulham, according to reports.

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov plans to reject a move to Serie A and join Fulham, according to reports.

Sky Italia says that the Bulgarian wants to stay in England and will turn down offers from Juventus and Fiorentina to move to Craven Cottage.

Berbatov looked bound for Italian champions Juventus just a matter of hours ago, but the saga surrounding the striker has taken a twist and he looks likely to stay in the Premier League.

Martin Jol is looking to rebuild in West London after losing Moussa Dembele to Tottenham Hotspur and having to deal with continued speculation surrounding Clint Dempsey's future.

Berbatov scored seven goals in 12 Premier League starts at Old Trafford last season but is deemed surplus to requirements by Sir Alex Ferguson after the arrival of Robin van Persie.

The 31-year-old looked to be the answer to Antonio Conte's search for a striker at Juve but wants to rekindle his career at Fulham this season.
