Dimitar Berbatov to Manchester City

That’ll teach the miserable Bulgar!

Surely not? As if calling themselves United wasn’t going to wind-up Red Devils fans enough, Manchester City’s new owners are now set to pip their city rivals to the signing of Dimitar Berbatov. City have had a £30 million bid for the long-term United target accepted, although the Bulgarian is believed to still be in talks with both Manchester clubs.

City manager Mark Hughes said: “”I’m stunned and excited. Both myself and the fans are very excited by what’s going on. There have been a lot of disruptions and negative publicity but that’s been put to the side in one fell swoop.”

Ironically, a move to Man City would, at best, be a sideways step for the man so desperate to play for a top club. Spurs won’t care – they just want to get rid of him at the right price. I can’t imagine Sir Alex Ferguson let his target slip through the net at this late stage though. He desperately needs a striker.

    I think that the only hope we have of signing Berbatov is if united don’t stump up cash. He surely won’t choose city over united sadly 😦 but if united don’t come in with the dosh, then there’s a chance as he’s pretty much burnt his bridges with Spurs.

  2. I suspect you might be right, monkeyallen, but I would laugh my socks off if he ended up at another club he didn’t want to be at!

  3. If only Spurs had held their nerve!
