We’re now going to ask you to suspend your disbelief even more than usual, as we look at The Sun’s latest pathetic attempt at journalism. The rag of rags has pretty much covered the Berbatov-to-Man United story from every single angle, so they now return to a popular theme – the fact that Spurs and the Red Devils don’t like each other very much.
Indeed, this prestigious tabloid is claiming that United make Tottenham’s skin crawl so much that they are prepared to flog their Bulgarian striker to Barcelona or Milan for less money than they would get from the English champions. Next, they’ll be telling us the word gullible has been removed from the dictionary.
TOTTENHAM will take a £5million hit to stop Dimitar Berbatov going to Manchester United.
Spurs are ready to let the Bulgarian strike ace join Barcelona or AC Milan for a cut-price £25m.
The Londoners had asked United to pay £30m before accusing them of unsettling their star player.
Spurs’ move is sure to further infuriate Old Trafford boss Alex Ferguson following the war of words that kicked off between the two clubs last week over Berbatov.
Fergie hit back at Tottenham by branding them “hypocrites”.
United have made a £20m take-it-or-leave-it bid for Berba, who wants to quit White Hart Lane.
So let me get this straight. United offer £20 million for the striker, yet Spurs are going to sell him for £25 million to a European club instead? How is that cut price? There was never any guarantee of getting the asking price of £30 million from the Red Devils! If the player wants to leave, that sort of money will represent a very handsome return on investment and enable Juande Ramos to do great things.
