PSG told: 'Berbatov not for sale'

"I had Ferguson on the phone but he told me that he was counting on Berbatov and that he was not for sale," PSG sporting director Leonardo told France Football after Sunday's 2-1 win over Valenciennes.

Berbatov lost his first-team spot to Javier Hernandez last term and has been overlooked in favour of youngster Danny Welbeck this season with Mexican Hernandez injured.

Under-achieving PSG were bought by wealthy Qatari investors in May and have embarked on a huge spending spree in a bid for titles in France and Europe.
