Sir Alex Ferguson is used to getting his own way. After all, Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and have made a habit of tapping up a wide range of players before signing them from a smaller outfit. The Scot has confirmed that Dimitar Berbatov is firmly in his sights, what a prospect it would be to see a front line of the Bulgarian, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez!
Sky Sports reports that an offer has been made and that the Red Devils manager seems pretty bullish about his team’s chances of landing the forward.
“We have made Tottenham an offer on Berbatov and we have good expectations that this deal will go through,” he said as he jetted out with his player’s ahead of United pre-season tour of South Africa.
“Berbatov has been impressive during a long time and would be a great addition to our attack.
“I think time will work for us more than against us.
“We will not stress this situation. We are hoping to have a constructive conversation with Tottenham in the near future.”
It has been clear for some time that the English champions have been targeting Berbatov, although it is worth pointing out two things. Firstly, that Barcelona also appear to be in the chase for the player and secondly, that there appears to be some bad blood between Spurs and United, which dates back to when Michael Carrick arrived at Old Trafford. I wouldn’t expect the negotiations to be quick!
