United pull out of Berbatov deal

MANCHESTER UNITED are set to pull the plug on their bid to sign Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov.

United have become aware that Spurs are willing to sell the Bulgarian to any club except themselves despite the European champions making a £20million bid for the player.

And the asking price could soar to £38m after United’s interest provoked a public spat between Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Sir Alex Ferguson over alleged tapping-up of Berbatov, with Tottenham lodging a formal complaint with the Premier League.

I think clubs such as Tottenham need to take it with a pinch of salt that there players want to move on and win tropheys.

A talented player like Berbatov doesn't deserve to win a Carling cup once every 30 years.

I think Tottenham fans need to stop blaming "greed" and start looking at the obvious thats slapping them in the face.... You cannot hold on to great players when most of these players have ambitions to actually achieve during there careers.

If Tottenham do indeed lose Berbatov it will come as a major blow after losing Club captain Robbie Keane to Liverpool during the week.

Do you think Berbatov will leave Tottenham if so to who? Come discuss this in the new First for football forum!
