Well, according to this report another long-running saga is all set to be done and dusted next week as this Tottenham man heads to Manchester United.
Why not continue this discussion at the COS forum?
Dimitar Berbatov’s move to Manchester United will go through this week.
A compromise deal between United and Tottenham has been struck.
It came after the Premier League admitted that they had temporarily suspended reviewing the evidence Spurs had submitted to them after the north London club claimed Berbatov had been illegally tapped up by United.
The Premier League was due to look at the evidence last Wednesday, but asked Tottenham to review their documentation and then re-submit it.
United have privately insisted that any deal was subject to the charges being dropped by Tottenham in the same way they facilitated a similar request from Liverpool to ensure Robbie Keane’s transfer went through.
United, in turn, are prepared to up their original £20million offer by a further £5m and include various incentives that will ensure the deal meets Spurs’ valuation of £30m. (Sunday Mirror)
Dimitar Berbatov cut a lonely figure sitting on the Spurs bench until he was brought on to little effect at the Riverside and this has further fuelled talk of a move to Old Trafford. The Sunday Mirror claims that the two parties have more or less agreed terms and that the deal is days away. The fee of £30m seems about right, especially given the fact that Carlos Tevez cost even more! I am sure that many Tottenham fans will be glad when this deal is over as it appears that mentally the Bulgarian already left the club towards the end of the last campaign! What do Spurs fans think Juande should do with the expected windfall from this move?
