Carrick for Berbatov anyone ?

I have read today that Spurs are set to make a £18 million bid to bring Michael Carrick back to White Hart Lane. I'm sure you have all heard in recent weeks about Man United's interest in Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov. So, what I think may happen is Man United pay Tottenham about £5 million + Carrick for Berbatov.

Two seasons ago United payed £18.6 million for Carrick from Tottenham and in his first season he made a decent impact. This season he has been out with injury for a large part of it and since then has struggled to get back in ahead of new signing Anderson in the United midfield. United also signed Owen Hargreaves in the summer and in my view Carrick and Hargreaves are very similar players.

Funnily enough, Carrick said yesterday that he would love Berbatov to join him at United. Berbatov has been unhappy for some time at Spurs and although he said last week that he would remain at the club many people still think a move to the Champions could be on the cards. Berbatov was a class act last season, but he has struggled so far this campaign.

So, could it be that the pair switch clubs in January? I certainly wouldn't bet against it.
