The future of Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov remains very much on hold after QPR boss Mark Hughes revealed he has made no bid for the player.
The former Spurs hitman, who cost United around £30million back in 2008, has already been linked with West Ham who said there was no interest.
There are a lot of names flying around but to be fair, this (Dimitar Berbatov) is a new one on me. Mark Hughes
Now Rangers have made it clear the player is not on their radar. The Bulgarian has dropped way down the Old Trafford pecking order and has declared his determination to play regular football on numerous occasions.
Sir Alex Ferguson recently said that he understands his player's concerns and would not stand in the way of his departure as long as it was for a reasonable price.
Galatasaray were interested in the forward, but were put off by United's valuation of the player.
Now QPR boss Hughes has declared: "There are a lot of names flying around but to be fair, this is a new one on me.
"At this time of year, there are a lot of names flying around. But we prefer to get the job done, get the business done, and then we announce it."
QPR take on Swansea on the first day of the new Premier League season and are 17.00 to win 3-0. A 1-0 victory for Swansea is at 11.00, while a goalless draw can be backed at 10.00.
