Ferguson relaxed over Berbatov future

Sir Alex Ferguson says he would be happy for Dimitar Berbatov to stay at Manchester United but is open to the striker departing the club this summer.

Berbatov has most recently been linked with AC Milan, who have sold star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Bulgarian made his desire to leave Old Trafford known after his playing time was reduced last season, as he slipped behind Danny Welbeck, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez in the pecking order.

"I do not need to herald the abilities of Dimitar Berbatov, he is a fantastic talent," said Ferguson. "Last season he didn't quite get the amount of football he wants. At his age, it was difficult for him to accept his position in the forward line.

"He had Rooney, Welbeck and Hernandez in front of him, and they are all young men. The boy has a future, but if he wants to leave it is a different matter.

"I am easy about it if he stays. I would be happy with that. But if someone comes in and Dimitar wants to leave, we will assess it."

Berbatov featured for United in an advanced midfield role in 1-0 win over AmaZulu in Durban on Wednesday evening, setting up the only goal for Federico Macheda in an unconvincing victory.
