Berbatov could leave the Spurs, Manchester United eyeing the striker

The days of the Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov at White Hart Lane may be numbered.

Berbatov could leave the Spurs, Manchester United eyeing the striker According 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 goalscorer.

 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."
