Loftus Road side look to sign another Old Trafford
Mark Hughes will look to complete a hat-trick of Man United signings as he prepares to a launch an £8m bid for Old Trafford striker Dimitar Berbatov.
The Bulgarian international has a year left to run on his current contract but Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly not ready to let the 31 year old leave ‘on the cheap’ so an offer of £8m may tempt the Scot into selling the former Tottenham man. It’s clear that relations between the Loftus Road side and Man United are good having seen Ji-Sung Park moving to the West London club and Brazilian youngster Fabio joining on a season long loan deal.
Mark Hughes has been looking to improve QPR’s attacking options and to that end has snapped up Andy Johnson on a free transfer after his Fulham contract came to an end and now the Welshman is looking to bring in Dimitar Berbatov and co-ownerTony Fernandes is ready to back the Super Hoops boss by making funds readily available for a significant offer.
Though Berbatov has struggled to secure a regular spot in Ferguson’s first team picture the talented forward is actually in the best goal-scoring form of his career, notching up 28 goals in his last 44 Premier League appearances.
The Man United man has fallen behind Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck in the striking pecking order and may well welcome a return to London and the promise of a better chance of regular first team football. QPR have already brought in some top notch signings this summer and are clearly looking to greatly improve on last term’s relegation threatened campaign.
Hughes has a number of strikers in his squad but of those in his armoury very few have made a positive impact. Speculation is rife that the the QPR boss will look to offload DJ Campbell, Rob Hulse, Heidar Helguson and Jay Bothroyd as the former Man City manager looks to put his own stamp on the squad he inherited from Neil Warnock in January.
