The 29-year-old Bulgarian striker has been in the news recently for the wrong reasons.
Dimitar Berbatov has had a dismal two years at Old Trafford, where he failed to live up to the expectations that were brought in with his £31 million transfer from White Hart Lane.
His recent run of poor performance for the Red Devils in the absence of the injured Rooney has led to widespread speculations about a possible move away this summer.
The impressive Bulgarian, distinctive for his skillful, effortless style of play, has been more than often touted as "lazy."
He is considered a misfit for the Red Devils creative style of play. He waits for opportunities to score goals unlike Rooney who creates chances himself.
With a mere 12 goals in 40 appearances this season, the ex-Spurs striker has been far from being impressive for the Old Trafford outfit.
Speculations are rife that United may swap Berbatov with Real Madrid's out-of-favor striker Karim Benzema. AC Milan are also reported to be interested in the six-time Bulgarian Player of the Year and are planning a £20 million bid for securing the Bulgarian's services.
Earlier it was reported that Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich are said to be interested in bringing back Berbatov to the Bundesliga.
Though there is no confirmation regarding Berbatov's future at Old Trafford, there will be a host of suitors waiting with lucrative offers to secure his services for next season.
