Can Spurs really keep their star striker? They’ve offered him a shiny new contract!

Although plenty of clubs have shown an interest in Dimitar Berbatov since he (or should that be his agent) declared that his time at White Hart Lane was up, none have been forthcoming in terms of lodging a bid for the Bulgarian striker. Which has obviously come as welcome news to Tottenham Hotspur, who have made sure that the player is only going to leave in the summer if it’s at the right price.

The fabulous read that is the Sofia Echo report that Spurs have offered Berbagol a brand new contract to continue his good work with Robbie Keane, with the forward getting £10k extra in his weekly pay packet if he signs on the dotted line. Fingers crossed Spurs fans…

The prospect of Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov leaving current club Tottenham Hotspur in one of this summer’s blockbuster transfer moves appears increasingly less likely with every passing day.

Despite serving as fodder for numerous transfer gossip column inches in the closing stages of the Premier League season, talk of Berbatov leaving the White Hart Lane club has quieted down, with none of the interested parties apparently putting in a bid for the striker.

Valued at 30 million pounds at one point by head coach Juande Ramos, Tottenham seem to have successfully scared off potential suitors, among them the freshly-crowned European champions Manchester United and Barcelona.

Tottenham fans will certainly be dancing in the street if this one comes off. There’ll be children swaying and records playing if the Bulgarian decides to be part of the Ramos revolution, while he’s bound to get some decent service from Keane and new signing Luka Modric. Go on Dimitar, you know you want to!
