The Telegraph is today reporting that only an obscenely huge whopper of a bid will tempt Tottenham to sell their striking talisman Dimitar Berbatov. Journo Marc Isaacs reckons that if Man Utd or Chelsea want to see Berbatov and his unique brand of Bulgarian brilliance at their club they’ll have to top the transfer record currently held by Chelsea when they frittered away £30.8 million on Andrei “Chocolate Teapot” Shevchenko back in May 2006.
Tottenham head honcho Juande Ramos said:
“I think a club would have to break the British transfer record to sign Berbatov. At this moment Berbatov’s value is more than this price. For us he’s a very important player and we don’t want to sell him. But everyone has a price.”
And more to the point will Tottenham take £31 million for the loss of a player that is central to Ramos’ plans for rebuilding?
