Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov is set for talks over a return to Bayer Leverkusen, with the Bulgarian travelling to Germany to speak with the club he left in 2006.

Berbatov, who has featured sporadically for the Premier League champions this season, has been considering his options for when his contract with the Red Devils concludes in the summer. This speculation comes following reports that suggest his contract with Manchester United will not be extended.

And now the 30-year-old, who has attracted interest from Bayern Munich and Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, reportedly wants to hear what is on offer from his former employers.

Berbatov became the club’s record-signing when he arrived at Old Trafford for a fee of£30.75million from Tottenham in September 2008.

A disappointing stint on the bench this season comes after he finished joint top-scorer in the league last season with 20 goals, alongside Manchester City Carlos Tevez.
