Tottenham Planning Sensational Move To Re-Sign Manchester United Striker Dimitar Berbatov

Spurs keen on Bulgarian.

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in re-signing Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov, according to a respected Sky Sports reporter.

Steve Bateman took to twitter to claim the north Londoners had asked United to name their price for the moody Bulgarian.

The 31-year-old is set to leave Old Trafford this summer after falling down the pecking order in Manchester. This week, the Bulgarian suggested it was ‘better for everyone’ if he left the club, with PSG thought to be leading the race for his signature.

Bringing Berbatov back to White Hart Lane would be a controversial move from new head-coach Andre Villas-Boas. The Bulgarian enjoyed two stunning seasons in north London, scoring 27 league goals and dazzling fans with his silky displays and telepathic link-up with Robbie Keane.

But in summer 2008, Berbatov reportedly refused to train amid interest from United and eventually Tottenham were forced to sell him on transfer deadline day for £30.75 million.

The Bulgarian has proved a reasonable success at Old Trafford, scoring 48 league goals in just over 100 appearances and finishing as the top scorer in the 2010/11 season.

But last campaign saw him marginalised behind Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck.

It is not yet clear whether Berbatov would welcome a return to N17 but the club’s reported interest is bound to cause division among the Tottenham faithful.
