Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Manchester United have made Tottenham an offer for their Bulgaria striker Dimitar Berbatov.
United manager Ferguson had already revealed he was trying to sign a player who would significantly improve the European champions.
Now he has signalled an all-out attempt to prise Berbatov from White Hart Lane by going public with his interest.
“We have made Tottenham an offer on Berbatov and we have good expectations that this deal will go through,” Ferguson told The Sun.
“Berbatov has been impressive during a long time and would be a great addition to our attack.”
A move to Old Trafford would suit Berbatov, who is keen to play in the Champions League. But Tottenham are believed to want 30 million pounds (37 million euros) for their star player, while United are offering around 22 million pounds (27.6 million euros).
Ferguson remains convinced he will get his man eventually and jetted off with United for their pre-season tour to Africa in confident mood.
“I think time will work for us more than against us,” Ferguson said.
“We will not stress this situation. We are hoping to have a constructive conversation with Tottenham in the near future.”
