Dimitar Berbatov: Turned down Fiorentina
Dimitar Berbatov's agent has told Fiorentina not to expect any money after the Bulgarian turned down a move to the club.
The Viola were left fuming on deadline day after they arranged for Berbatov to fly into Florence after agreeing a deal with Manchester United.
However, firstly Juventus and then more tellingly Fulham stepped in to make rival bids and Berbatov moved to Craven Cottage.
Fiorentina were furious and demanded that Berbatov and his agent paid for the flights and arrangements that were in place
But Emil Dantchev says that will not be happening, telling Tuttomercatoweb: "What about Fiorentina's request? It's an irrelevant question.
"Why should we pay for the plane? And because in Italy you take care so much about such a thing? Juventus and Fiorentina were two options for Dimitar, but then he chose England and coach Jol's Fulham. A choice that satisfies us fully."
But Fiorentina's sporting director Daniele Prade says he is still waiting to be paid, telling ANSA: "There was no explanation with Juventus over Berbatov.
"Anyway I'm still waiting for Berbatov and his agent to return to us the money for the plane ticket. When it happens I'll say it publicly."
