Well according to this report, the long drawn-out saga involving Manchester United’s chase for this Tottenham man will be over before the week is out!
Tottenham striker Berbatov on brink of Manchester United transfer by the end of the week
Manchester United are closing in on a deal that should finally see Dimitar Berbatov leave Tottenham for around £28million.
The striker has become increasingly desperate to move to Old Trafford and is expected to get his wish.
Tottenham reported United to the Premier League over their pursuit of the Bulgarian international last month, but that won’t prevent the transfer from going ahead.
Spurs are believed to be close to signing an additional striker and that is why they are now ready to let him go, although the club are determined to get the best possible price for Berbatov.
They have been pursuing Zenit St Petersburg forward Andrei Arshavin and Spartak Moscow star Roman Pavlyuchenko, and head coach Juande Ramos still has a large transfer fund. (Telegraph)
The Charity Shield performance against Portsmouth may have spurred Sir Alex Ferguson into action after they failed to break down the Pompey defence, and now it appears the United boss is willing to meet the £28m valuation for the Bulgarian. Wayne Rooney is supposedly fit for the weekend encounter against Newcastle and it will be interesting to see how the club can accommodate Berbatov as well as the current front two at Old Trafford?
Dimitar has made it clear for some time that he wants out of White Hart Lane, and his sulky behaviour has at times been cringeworthy to watch, but Spurs Ramos is already planning a replacement which could come in the form of either of the two Russians mentioned in this source. Do Man United fans think their team can secure even more silverware than last term?
