Premier League Swansea admit interest in Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov could return to the Premier League with Swansea manager Bob Bradley admitting the veteran striker is “on his radar”.

The former Tottenham, Manchester United and Fulham forward has been without a club since leaving Greek side PAOK in June.

But the 35-year-old has expressed an interest in returning to the Premier League and Bradley has forwarded his name to the Swansea hierarchy.

Berbatov told BBC Radio 5 live Sport on Wednesday night: “When you’ve played in the Premier League you don’t want to play anywhere else.

“In this stage of my career I know where I am – I would happily play for a team where they use my experience and my knowledge.

“I can help young players develop and make the team stronger.

“In the end it’s all about helping the team play.”

Bradley believes Berbatov, who scored over 120 goals in English football and won the Premier League twice at Manchester United, could help Swansea escape the relegation zone.

And the former United States boss revealed that the striker’s name has already been spoken about regarding recruitment.

“‘I actually saw him (Berbatov) in May at the celebration game for Hristo Stoichkov in Sofia,” Bradley said at his press conference ahead of Sunday’s home game against Manchester United.

“So I have met Dimitar a few times and I know he is anxious to get back into the Premier League.

“Everyone inside our club knows that, and so when there are (transfer) discussions his name is included.

“Where it takes us at this time I don’t have an answer.

“But certainly I know about his intentions and I have certainly seen some of the good things he’s done in the past.

“Yes he’s on my radar – there’s a lot of things on my radar right now.”
