United Lodge First Berbatov Bid

Manchester United have reportedly made their first major move of the summer by bidding for Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov…

According to The Sun, United last night lodged a ₤20million bid for Berbatov, thus finally following through on their long-term interest in the Bulgarian international.

Sir Alex Ferguson believes the ex-CSKA Sofia hitman will provide a perfect counterpoint to the likes of Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez in United’s forward-line, which has been missing a target-man since Ruud van Nistelrooy’s departure in 2006.

Berbatov has been widely tipped to leave White Hart Lane this summer after two sensational seasons that saw him tally 46 goals and a similarly impressive number of assists.

The former Bayer Leverkusen player is desperate for a return to the Champions League and has courted interest from the likes of Barcelona and AC Milan, but both were scared off by the 27-year-old's intial 30million price tag.

Spurs boss Juande Ramos is unwilling to sell his prize forward, but his extensive spending this year – totalling around ₤50million thus far – means he must bring in more funds before continuing his summer renovations.
