Who Is The Target Of United's Bid?

Who Is The Target Of United's Bid?

Media reports have emerged that United made a bid yesterday for a hitherto unnamed player. Today Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed it yet still not revealed who the mysterious player was.

Of course it does not seem difficult to guess. Sergio Aguero dismissed speculation of an imminent move while no other player were linked strongly with United - apart from the most obvious choice, Dimitar Berbatov.

The Bulgarian forward is a long-term target of Sir Alex and it was reported earlier that United had agreed a fee with Tottenham. While these reports were proved to be wrong, it is certain that Fergie is keen to conclude a deal for the highly rated striker.

Spurs apparently want 30m for Berbatov while United are prepared to pay only 20m, as we count on Juande Ramos's hurry to raise money to invest his squad further. Our case, though, could be hindered by Liverpool's attempts to sign Robbie Keane as Tottenham will have to contemplate selling their two first-choice strikers which is, obviously, not a very desirable prospect for a club which regard itself as one capable of cracking the Top Four.

Fergie said the player in question would greatly enhance United and I don't mean to sound arrogant but the only real department where major strengthening is required is up front: our squad, combined with the endless speculation about Berbatov, certainly proves that the Bulgarian is the man we're trying to sign. Fergie's craving his signature so much, according to reports, that he cancelled his proposed talks with Ronaldo which would have taken place in Lisbon.

It remains to be seen whether United's trip to South Africa will delay the transfer but it is in both parties' interests to seal it quickly.
