Sir Alex is having a nightmare trying to control Cristiano Ronaldo’s constant pleas for a move to Real Madrid, thankfully he can take his mind off it by planning a swoop for one hell of a striker!
MANCHESTER United could be a step closer to signing Dimitar Berbatov with Tottenham closing in on Spain striker David Villa.
Reports on Sunday claimed Juande Ramos had already agreed a £20m fee with Villa’s club Valencia.
That would pave the way for Berbatov to quit White Hart Lane and allow Sir Alex Ferguson to firm up his long-standing interest in the Bulgarian international.
United were knocked back in a move for him last summer, but they are confident they would have more joy with a renewed bid.
Ferguson has made it clear a new striker is a priority for next season with Louis Saha likely to move on to Roma.
He has closely watched Lyons forward Karim Benzema as well Brazilian Luis Fabiano and Klaas Jan Huntelaar of Ajax.
But he has long-been an admirer of Berbatov, who would cost in the region of £25m. (Manchester Evening News)
It has also been revealed today that the future of Carlos Tevez as a United player is also hanging in the balance, so all the more reason to chase the Bulgarian from White Hart Lane. Quite frankly, the way his Portuguese star has treated both Ferguson and the club, the Scot should sell him immediately and concentrate on a future with a big bundle of money to invest in some talent.
Berbatov seems destined to leave north London and he is a fantastic player whose abilities would suit Wayne Rooney very well. So do United fans think that Cristiano has played his last game for the Old Trafford side? Do Spurs fans feel they are fighting a losing battle to keep Berbs at the club?
