"I do not need to herald the abilities of Dimitar Berbatov, he is a fantastic talent,'' he said. "Last season he didn't quite get the amount of football he wants. At his age, it was difficult for him to accept his position in the forward line.
"He had Rooney, Welbeck and Hernandez in front of him, and they are all young men. The boy has a future, but if he wants to leave it is a different matter. I am easy about it if he stays. I would be happy with that. But if someone comes in and Dimitar wants to leave, we will assess it.''

09.36 BST: Rennes striker Jires Kembo Ekoko is hoping to put pen to paper on a new contract, saying he doesn’t want to leave – a refreshing change to hear someone say that sort of thing this summer.

09.25 BST: Norwich City have had a bid for Leeds United skipper Robert Snodgrass rejected, with Leeds manager Neil Warnock telling his club’s official website: "It's been made public that they have bid, but from our own point of view it's not what we're looking for.
"It's difficult when players get their heads turned, but I'd like to keep Rob at the club and that's what I'm trying to do at the moment. Unless they come up with a valuation that the club thinks is satisfactory then that's what we want to do."
09.15 BST: Maybe they’ll finally, formally announce it today, then: Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has said "the deal is done" to sign AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

09.14 BST: More from Stamford Bridge: Chelsea have had a £26 million offer for playmaker Willian turned down, according to the Shakhtar Donetsk manager Mircea Lucescu.

"I told Willian he can leave, but only if the right offer is made," Lucescu told Romanian TV station Dolce Sport. "He's a great player. Willian was the biggest investment Shakhtar have made in a young player - we have to respect that."
09.11 BST: Roberto Di Matto’s playing it coy: Oscar has arrived in England, but the Chelsea boss won’t be drawn on the prospect of the forward moving to Stamford Bridge.
Oscar, 20, flew into Heathrow Airport as part of the Brazil squad for the Olympics, but his club future is a subject of speculation, with a £25 million fee reported to have been agreed between Chelsea and Internacional.
Di Matteo told Chelsea’s official website: "I can tell you that he's not a Chelsea player so it's difficult for me to talk about a player that doesn't belong to us.
"I know there has been speculation we are interested in this player and, in due course, if there is anything to announce we will do. All I would say is that he is a very young talented midfield player."
09.04 BST: Apparently determined to get rid of £35 million striker Andy Carroll, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is on the verge of making an addition to his attacking options in the shape of Fulham’s Clint Dempsey.
The Mail reports that Liverpool have agreed a £10 million fee with the Londoners for Dempsey, and says the deal could be tied up by the end of the week.
The 29-year-old “has an impressive scoring record, as a striker or attacking midfielder, and is due on Merseyside to complete the formalities in the next few days”, the paper says.
09.01 BST: More on another player whose name has been pretty constantly involved in the whirl of summer speculation – Porto’s Hulk.
The Daily Mail says Spurs boss Villas-Boas is lining up a move for the Brazilian. It says AVB “wants him to be his marquee signing at White Hart Lane and has been given the go-ahead to initiate talks”.
08.58 BST: Shy and retiring Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has rejected a third Chelsea bid for Victor Moses, one of the stars of the show in the Latics’ superb finale to last season.
Whelan rejected one Stamford Bridge offer as “taking the Mickey” earlier this summer, but the Sun says the Blues have increased their bid to £5 million. Whelan values the player at £10 million.
But Whelan wants the 21-year-old to stay where he is and continue his development as a player under the guidance of Roberto Martinez, and said: “They [Chelsea] have made three bids and we’ve not accepted any. We’re still hoping that he signs an extended deal.”
08.53 BST: The Sun says Rafael Van der Vaart is staying at Tottenham – and he’s targeting the title.
The Netherlands international was thought to be considering a move after Harry Redknapp was sacked, but says he is looking forward to working with Andre Villas-Boas.
“My place is at Spurs - I want to win the title with this club,” the paper quotes him as saying. “Each summer, my name appears in the transfer market.
“The new coach has good plans for me, and this is important. I have heard excellent reports about AVB. We have very good attacking and if AVB imposes an offensive system, the team could be a real spectacle.”
08.48 BST: Interesting times for those of a Watford persuasion. The Pozzo takeover, as well as offering an opportunity for pretentious Waiting for Godot-type jokes, could see two genuine legends of the Italian game at Vicarage Road.
The Mirror says: “Gianfranco Zola has lined up fellow Italian legends Filippo Inzaghi and Alessandro Del Piero as two sensational summer signings for Watford.
“World Cup-winning duo Inzaghi, now 38, and Del Piero, 37, are free agents after leaving their Serie A clubs this summer.” Wonder what they’d make of life in the Championship?
08.35 BST: The first of many Van Persie tales today, you’d suspect: the Star says the (for now) Arsenal man has turned down a £300,000-a-week offer from Juventus and will now join Manchester City.
Yesterday, he was supposed to have wanted to join Juve to avoid playing for a Premier League rival of Arsenal’s. Then he was supposed to have been keener to join Manchester United than City. Now he doesn’t want to go to Italy and does want to go to City. It'll be different on Thursday, and again on Friday. And again. And again.
Anyway, the paper says the Juve move would have made Van Persie the highest-paid player in Italy, an accolade (or something) previously held by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is on the brink of completing a move to Paris Saint Germain.
One more snippet from the Star: the paper says West Brom are hopeful of completing a deal for Argentine midfielder Claudio Yacob, who is out of contract, but have cooled their interest in Rennes midfielder Tongo Doumbia
08.25 BST: Good morning, and here’s one you might not have seen coming after another day of Robin van Persie-related hoopla on Tuesday – Micah Richards is wanted by Real Madrid, who have apparently made contact with Manchster City about the possibility of signing him.
The Daily Star says Real coach Jose Mourinho is a big admirer of the England full-back and is willing to pay £20 million to bring him to the Bernabeu. Mourinho also tried to sign Richards during his time as Chelsea manager.
Richards agreed a new £70,000 a week deal at the Etihad recently, but the Star says City manager Roberto Mancini could be willing to accept a £20 million offer.
The paper reported a source as saying: “Real Madrid made contact with City a few weeks ago and Micah is waiting to see what City do, but he would definitely be interested in the move.
“Jose Mourinho has always rated him and reckons he would be a great addition to his squad as they look to defend their Spanish title and try to win back the Champions League.”
The paper also reports that Lokomotiv Moscow have made an approach to City for Emmanuel Adebayor amid doubts over the striker’s hopes of completing a permanent £6 million move to Tottenham, where he was on loan last season.
