Dimitar Berbatov could soon be plying his trade in India as the former Manchester United and Tottenham striker is in talks with Kerala Blasters, Press Association Sport understands.

The 36-year-old became a cult figure during his time in the Premier League, shining for Spurs, impressing at Old Trafford and showing flashes of brilliance at Fulham.

Berbatov has been without a club since leaving Greek side PAOK Salonika last summer, but the Bulgarian may now be returning to action in the Indian Super League.

The striker is understood to be in talks with Kerala Blasters, who recently appointed former United first-team coach Rene Meulensteen as manager.

There is sure to be at least one of the Dutchman's former charges at the Blasters next season after the club announced Wes Brown's signature on Tuesday.

Earlier this month former Republic of Ireland captain Robbie Keane joined reigning ISL champions Atletico de Kolkata, who are coached by former England striker Teddy Sheringham.

Former United winger Steve Coppell will manage Jamshedpur FC in the ISL this season.
