Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov scored his 50th goal for Manchester United with a classy backheel as his team smashed Fulham 5-0 at Craven Cottage.

Berbatov's spectacular finish came after Danny Welbeck, Nani, Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney had already settled the game for the title contenders.

The Bulgarian striker's sublime goal deserved a special praise form Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who was extremely delighted by his team's overall performance, describing it as one of the best of the season.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Man Utd face a financial dilemma over the future of Dimitar Berbatov. The Old Trafford chiefs are weighing up the possibility of letting him leave on a free transfer at the end of the season instead of proposing him a new lucrative contract, The Telegraph has reported.

The Premier League champions have ten days to decide the Bulgarian forward's future at Old Trafford.
