It would be fair to say that The Sun has had its number of false ‘revelations’ over the past few years, but Manchester United fans will hope that today’s top story is not one of them. According to the English tabloid, Manchester United is back in the hunt to sign Tottenham striker, Dimitar Berbatov.
Rumours linking the Bulgarian with Manchester United have had their reserved spot in the English press ever since the player first came to England. In fact, only months after joining Tottenham, Sky Sports reported that the player chose to join Martin Jol’s team even though United had come in with a late bid.
Now, United will have to pay a huge transfer fee if they are to land the man they have been tracking for two years. The Sun reports that any potential deal is likely to be worth around Ã‚Â£25 million; a sum which United has put aside last summer for this particular transfer.
AC Milan officials have made their club’s interest in the player public, but it is though that, should an offer come from England, the player would prefer to stay on the island. A major boost for Sir Alex Ferguson in his quest to sign the talented striker is that Juande Ramos has previously declared that every player in his squad has a price. If that price is Ã‚Â£25 million and if UnitedÃ‚Â do have that sum set aside, then there will be incoming reinforcements to the European Champions’ attacking line up.
