Dimitar Berbatov's agent has said the Manchester United striker's future "will be decided over the next few days", with a move to Fiorentina or Juventus likely.
Berbatov, 31, has been pushed further down the pecking order at Old Trafford after the arrival of Robin van Persie, and has been strongly linked with a move to the peninsula.
Those rumours intensified when the Viola president Andrea Della Valle told journalists earlier this week that he would sign a top class striker "whose name begins with the letter B".
Marco Borriello was another name to be mentioned - but Berbatov's agent Emil Dantchev refused to either confirm or deny interest in his client, telling Il Sussidiario: "I don't know what news is coming from the papers, but I always try not to give them excessive credence.
"Are Fiorentina and Inter looking at him? I don't know, and if you want to know that then you had better ask them.
"The only thing I feel ready to say right now is that his future will be decided over the next few days."
