Over the weekend, reports linking Spurs with a £5m move for former striker Dimitar Berbatov began to emerge once again. We’d already covered this story on a number of occasions so didn’t comment at the time but it’s interesting to look at the latest suggestions from the Bulgarian media.
Firstly, here’s what the player’s agent had to say about his client’s situation at Old Trafford,
“Dimitar will be able to look for a new team during the summer and United’s management assured us that they will not obstruct us in that,” said Emil Danchev.
The report then goes on to claim that Luka Modric will be thrown into the mix and while United may be keen on the Croatian, our £40m price tag has put them off. As a result, Berbatov could be used as ‘bait’ to tempt Spurs into a transfer.
Dimitar Berbatov plus cash for Luka – is there any temptation in that deal whatsoever?
