United to bid £25 million for Spurs striker

Manchester United are today preparing a £25 million bid for Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov. The Bulgarian international has been linked with numerous exits from White Hart Lane already this summer as his future at the club looks more and more in doubt. (The Sun)

Berbatov, 27, has attracted the attentions of some of Europe's top clubs including AC Milan and Barcelona, but is thought now that Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to steal a march on his rivals. Berbatov has been at Spurs since 2006, scoring 46 goals in that time. Spurs boss Juande Ramos has admitted he doesn't feel as though Berbatov would be with the North London club come next season.

I personally think Dimitar would be a tremendous signing for United. He is without doubt one of the Premier League's best striker and has amazed how well he has settled in England over these past two years. I feel it is vital United start planning for life after Cristiano Ronaldo now because they want to have a strong squad in place for when the Portuguese star eventually leaves.
