DIMITAR BERBATOV believes it would be "better for everyone" if he left Manchester United this summer.
The Bulgarian's four-year stay at Old Trafford looks to be coming to a close after he found himself outside manager Sir Alex Ferguson's first-team plans last season.
The 31-year-old made just 12 league outings last term, scoring seven goals, a year after he was the Barclays Premier League's equal top-scorer.
It is a scenario that Berbatov revealed had frustrated him in a post on his official Facebook page this afternoon.
He wrote: "The truth is, I love this club, but I am not going to be useful to anyone if I am not playing. And I want to play, I want to help.
"But for unknown reasons it's not going to happen, or my chances will be limited, so it's better for everyone if we say goodbye."
He added: "If not, I am professional and I will keep doing everything I can to help my team and my team-mates, whenever I have an opportunity to do so."
A host of clubs are apparently already circling to acquire the services of a player who cost United £30million when he signed from Spurs four years ago.
He added: "Because I am tired of speculation, I am telling you this.
"I read the papers and I see they say 10 million pounds is my price. I go and talk with Sir Alex, and he says to me five million. So who is telling the truth, what do you think?"
Berbatov has scored 48 league goals at United, helping them to two Premier League titles.
