Manchester United have signed Bulgaria striker Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham in a deal worth £30.75m.
United striker Fraizer Campbell, 20, has moved in the other direction on a season-long loan as part of the deal.
Spurs will not pursue their complaint to the Premier League accusing United of chasing 27-year-old Berbatov.
“Joining United is a dream come true. I look forward to playing my part in helping this club win more honours,” he told the Old Trafford side’s website.
United manager Sir Alex Ferguson added: “This is a key signing. Dimitar is one of the best and most exciting strikers in world football.
“His style and ability will give the team a different dimension and I’m sure he will be a popular player with the fans.”
The capture ends a summer-long saga that took a dramatic twist on transfer deadline day.
Earlier on Monday, it appeared rivals Manchester City were going to shatter United’s hopes after they had a bid of more than £30m accepted by Spurs. (BBC Sport)

So now he’s gone can Tottenham get their season back on track? Their great draw at Stamford Bridge should be the precursor to a move back up the table and Berbatov should ease Sir Alex’s striking concerns at Old Trafford. There is no doubting the strikers immense talent but the way he has conducted himself is in many ways far worse than the supposed tapping up by Ferguson and it will be interesting to see how Spurs fans will react the next time they come face to face with Dimitar. So Spurs fans now that Berbs has left what do you think the club can achieve this season? And Manchester United supporters, were you hoping for an out and out striker like Huntelaar or Benzema, or will the former Leverkusen man be the perfect fit for the team?
