Reserves beckon for Berbatov

Tottenham will dump striker Dimitar Berbatov in the reserves if Manchester United do not come up with the 30million pounds (42 million euros) they want for the 27-year-old Bulgarian striker who has handed in a transfer request to try to force a move.

With the transfer window to close on September 1, United will have to look sharp if they are to make a move for the sharpshooter, whose unsettled stance led coach Juande Ramos to leave him on the bench for Saturday's defeat to Sunderland.

Ramos deemed him psychologically unfit to play and a threat to dressing-room harmony – and media reports in London on Monday said he faced being banished from the first team altogether.

Ramos and Berbatov held talks Sunday but the key to the outcome is whether United can come up with the cash to land their man.

Earlier this summer, Spurs had complained to the Premier League in the belief United had tapped up the forward.

With Robbie Keane having joined Liverpool, Spurs, who have lost their opening two league fixtures, would have only Darren Bent as an out-and-out striker should they offload Berbatov.

Radamel Falcao of Argentine side River Plate has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane, as has Wigan's veteran front man Emile Heskey

This is a great article. Isn’t it enough for Spurs, that they can sell him for more than twice the money they bought him for?! He doesn’t want to play for them, and quite honestly, he is right. Chances for tropheys are slim to none. If they have any, is if Berba wants to play for them. And there is another joker: who do they/Spurs/ take the public for..: “let him rot in the reserves”?!! Yeah, let him “rot”, and have his value go down, because we’re sooo good, that we don’t care about money.. Ha, whoever wants to believe… Read more »
