No Silvaware But Berbatov On His Way

No Silvaware But Berbatov On His Way

Manchester United have put in a bid for David Silva of Valencia but the Spanish club rejected it, according to the players' agent.

The representative stated that Silva was happy in Spain and if he were to leave Valencia which he won't then he would consider only Real Madrid and Barcelona. Case closed I think though it would have been fantastic to sign him. Maybe next year when Ronaldo leaves for Madrid...

Now, the better news is that Dimitar Berbatov is apparently on his way. Press reports claim he told Spurs teammates he would join United by the end of the week and it's been said that the two clubs are very close to agreeing a fee which would be around Ł28m.

Spurs' initial demand, of course, was much higher while our first bid was much lower... now it looks like a good deal for all parties concerned. Hopefully he'll really be a United player by the end of the week though I'm highly doubtful about this one. The way our transfers usually go (last season's lightning raid for Nani and Anderson was the exception that proved the rule) I'll be happy if it's completed in two weeks' time. And if completed at all.

Not sure if Berbatov will move, would certainly be a great signing for Utd.
