Spurs have managed to reach the fixture publication date and still have Dimitar Berbatov on their books. Surely the next target is to still have the Bulgarian come the start of July, especially if the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid have started to acquire other attacking diamonds.
However, the Daily Telegraph report that there is a potential suitor for the centre-forward and it’s a biggie. Barcelona have a new manager at the helm and the word on the street is that Pep Guardiola likes the look of the Spurs hitman. With Ronaldinho almost certain to leave and Eto’o also eyeing a move away, is Berba bound for the Nou Camp?
The Catalan club are rebuilding under new manager Pep Guardiola and reports suggest that the Bulgaria forward will soon become the subject of a £25 million bid. Berbatov’s future in North London has been uncertain since last season when he was linked with a possible move to Old Trafford, where Sir Alex Ferguson is thought to be one of his admirers.
Spurs, reluctant to part with arguably their best player, are even less keen on selling the Bulgaria international to another Premier League club and have made it clear that a price in excess of £30m will be necessary.
It’s just possible that all of Berbatov’s potential bidders may baulk at the striker’s price tag, something which has also occurred between Emmanuel Adebayor and Milan. Tottenham are clearly determined to get every penny possible for the striker if he is to jump ship, although Barcelona are surely in a position to break the bank if they want to land one of the best players that the Premier League has ever seen.
