Sir Alex badly wants this Tottenham talisman but there could be one rather large obstacle in the way of the move!
Manchester United are stepping up their bid for Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov.
The Observer says United’s summer-long pursuit of Berbatov “is back on the agenda”, according to a source at Old Trafford – but with Tottenham holding out for more than £30m, “the problem is the price”. (tribalfootball.com)
So if the major problem blocking this move is the Bulgarian’s valuation then we aren’t really any nearer to this deal being completed. Spurs have said time and again they won’t back down on their asking price which is thought to be in the region of £32m so unless Ferguson decides to pay more then maybe Barcelona, also interested in the 28 year old, will decide to firm up their interest. Whilst it’s hard to judge who’s estimation is nearer the mark, clearly the north London club have a right demand what they feel is suitable for a player of Dimitar’s quality. However will Daniel Levy be happy if he is left with a player who doesn’t want to play for the club? What do Manchester United and Spurs fans think is a fair price for Berbatov?
