Dimitar Berbatov 'released by Fulham'

New Monaco forward Dimitar Berbatov insists he has not joined the club to replace Falcao and is looking forward to making his debut against PSG.

There is some confusion over the future of Dimitar Berbatov after it emerged he has been released by Fulham.

Berbatov, 33, joined Ligue 1 title challengers Monaco on the final day of the January transfer window, reportedly on loan from Rene Meulensteen’s side until the end of the season.

However, with the striker’s contract at Craven Cottage having been due to expire in June, the former Manchester United man has actually signed a six-month deal at the French club, rather than joining on loan.

L'Equipe reported on Thursday that the French Football League (LFP) had confirmed to the sports daily that "it is not a loan, but a normal contract."

The paper also reported that Fulham have confirmed Berbatov no longer belongs to them.

"Fulham have loaned him to us. Perhaps he has agreed with his club to end his contract by mutual consent at the end of the season," a Monaco source is reported as saying in L'Equipe.

"Anyway, it changes nothing. He belongs to us until the end of the season."
