leave the Spurs, Manchester United eyeing the striker
The days of the Bulgarian
striker Dimitar Berbatov at White Hart Lane may be numbered.
to the latest reports, Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov may be
leaving the club early next year. Berbatov's agent Emil Dantchev
told the Guardian on Monday "I have already spoken to the
Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy, and told him that if a club
that corresponds to Dimitar's class and ambition comes in with
an offer that suits his current club in January, he would like
to be allowed to go. Fans must understand Dimitar is 27 next
month and time is running out for him to play for a club that
can match his ambition." Dimitar Berbatov joined the Spurs
in 2006 and netted 22 goals in his first season with Tottenham,
and this campaign he has scored 11 already, most notably 4 goals
for the 6-4 victory over Reading in the Spurs' last match.
Tottenham will visit Aston Villa on January 1st as underdog with
odds 2/1 to win the game at the British sportsbook
Bet365, where Berbatov holds
10/1 odds to become the Barclays Premier League's leading
Rumours that Manchester United will snatch
the Bulgarian player are already appearing in the British press.
Berbatov has regularly been linked with Manchester United and
the fact that his agent's comments came just before the
mid-season transfer window could mean that Sir Alex Ferguson
could submit an offer.
"He's not for sale and we don't want to sell
him. This is the contractual situation at the moment. The
chairman is working very hard to make sure he stays. He is a
very important player for us," said Juande Ramos and
continued "If it was up to me Dimitar would stay - but I
cannot guarantee it."
