The Lord of the Ferg’s ruddy cheeks have just turned molten orange at news of this potential outrage…The Daily Mail today presents us with some piping hot transfer tripe. They claim that, having decided that Adebayor is too pricey, Barcelona are going to have a punt on Dimitar Berbatov instead.
According to the Daily Mail’s crack squadron of journos:
Barcelona have launched an 11th hour to tempt Dimitar Berbatov away from Tottenham – and ruin Sir Alex Ferguson’s plans.
Manchester United boss Ferguson is confident he’ll land Bulgaria striker Berbatov before the start of the season and is reported to have tabled a £20m-plus bid.
But Barca are now poised to offer £24million after losing patience with Arsenal over Emmanuel Adebayor who has been valued at £35m for the Togo striker. (Daily Mail)
If true, and that is a big “IF”, a move to Barca would definitely represent the lesser of two evils for Tottenham fans – as it would surely be preferable to seeing the Bulgarian gallivanting around in a Man Utd kit.
