Darren Fletcher is confident that a successful future at Manchester United awaits striker Dimitar Berbatov.
The Bulgarian has struggled to consistently impress since his big-money switch from Tottenham in 2008.
Fletcher, though, is certain that the forward is a key member of Sir Alex Ferguson's side, who finished second in the Premier League last season.
Of Berbatov, who has scored 21 league goals in 64 appearances, Fletcher said: "Dimitar is a great player.
"He has fantastic ability. I cannot see him going anywhere. He is an important part of the team.
"It is a squad game at Manchester United and he is an important part of that squad. He is a really good guy. I get on well with him. He is a great lad to have around the squad."
Meanwhile, Fletcher feels that 29-year-old Berbatov's experience will benefit the likes of youngsters Javier Hernandez, Federico Macheda, Danny Welbeck and Mame Biram Diouf.
He added: "He has a lot of experience. For all our younger players and younger strikers, I am sure they can learn a lot from Dimitar."
