Fulham striker Berbatov set to move to Monaco
Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov is set to undergo a medical ahead of his deadline-day move to Monaco, reports Sky Sports.
The Bulgarian, who arrived at Craven Cottage 2012, had previously indicated he would be open to leaving the club this month, and former employers Tottenham were thought to be interested in taking the 33-year-old back to White Hart Lane, while Arsene Wenger was also thought to be interested in signing him.
Monaco appear to have won the race for his services, however, and Berbatov looks set to put pen to paper on a deal with the Ligue 1 side ahead of tonight's 11pm transfer deadline.
Berbatov arrived in England with Tottenham in 2006, before completing a £30.75m move to Man United in 2008. That deal was a club record at Old Trafford until the recent £37.5m arrival of Juan Mata, but the striker – who retired from international football in 2010 having won 78 caps for Bulgaria – left to join Fulham in August 2012.
He has played 51 games for the Cottagers since that time, netting 19 goals.
