Tottenham’s Bulgaria striker Dimitar Berbatov on Monday pleaded to be allowed to follow his dream.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to Manchester United for much of the summer.
But Spurs turned down the original bid of 20 million pounds saying they were not interested in letting Berbatov go for less than 30 million.
“I’m now in Tottenham but no one can disagree with me wanting to follow my dream,” Berbatov told The Times ahead of his country’s midweek friendly with Bosnia-Herzegovina.
His agent Emil Dantchev said: “We have two more weeks until the end of the transfer window and I think this will be the most important week. I read Alex Ferguson’s statement that he wants another striker and I hope that this striker is Dimitar Berbatov.”
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has not made a formal offer since seeing his first bid turned down but with Cristiano Ronaldo out injured and Carlos Tevez missing due to a bereavement, the champions’ problems up front were obvious as they opened their title defence with a 1-1 draw against Newcastle on Sunday.
