Dimitar Berbatov has confirmed he would like to stay at Monaco beyond the end of this season.

The Bulgarian forward joined Monaco on loan from Fulham before the close of the January transfer window following a season-ending injury to Radamel Falcao.

Berbatov has scored three goals in nine appearances in Ligue 1 and his nonchalant lob secured a 1-0 victory over Nice on Sunday.

The 33-year-old is enjoying his time with Claudio Ranieri's side and he plans to hold talks with Monaco once the campaign is over.

"My future? Everything is fine for me here, I play and score," Berbatov told L'Equipe.

"When the season is over, we will sit around a table and we will decide if I stay or leave.

"I am doing my job on the pitch so far and I try to prove I am quite good. Do I want to stay at Monaco? Yes, I would like to stay."

Berbatov's goal against Nice edged Monaco closer to UEFA Champions League qualification and the former Manchester United striker rates his effort highly.

He added: "That goal is in my top three, after the goal against Liverpool with Manchester United and another one against Roma."
