Finally, Fergie long awaited striker is in his hand. After pursuing for 18 months, Dimitar Berbatov is expected to agree personal terms and seal his £25million move to Manchester United. This will make Sir Alex Ferguson dream come true to field his dream attacking line-up featuring Berbatov, Carlos Tevez, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo when the latter two regain health and fitness.
The Bulgarian Kapitan, a 27-year-old forward will be offered a four-year deal worth in the region of £80,000-a-week. United hope he will appear on their official pre-season team photo, scheduled to be taken on Friday.
With his statistic last season , Berbatov will be a perfect replacement for top scorer Ruud Van Nistelrooy. Man U has been missing Nistelrooy for quite some time, they have banking on Ronaldo to deliver rather than their striker.
Since Ronaldo will not be available for first month of starting season 2008/2009, Berbatov is the man to help Man U winning more silverware this season.Berbatov will have the chance to play in Champion League again, which is one of the reason he part his way to Man United.
With increase of fund for Spurs, they will seek for fast replacement for Berbatov.This could also mean the North London club are close to landing Zenit St Petersburg star Andrei Arshavin.
