Is Berbatov's Position Untenable?

Is Berbatov's Position Untenable?

Juande Ramos has left Dimitar Berbatov out of his squad for the visit of Sunderland because United's target is not focused enough.

This is baffling now. Fergie has revealed he's pessimistic about our chances of signing Berbatov; yet the striker's attitude is deemed to be unsatisfactory by his manager which is usually a sign of an impending transfer.

Fergie could be playing games, Ramos could be playing games... but it looks like that we are unable to struck a deal with Spurs yet Berbatov's position at his club is starting to become untenable.

Will they keep him there just because they refuse to lower their demands while United refuse to up their offer? We might never know, we might learn it soon. But, as I have said before, we need Berbatov. We should conclude this saga as soon as possible.

Yes, the news is he's out of the squad, and on his way to United. But he could also be sold to another club. My guess is he'll be a United player within the next few days. (Hope that's not being too optimistic).

I do wonder with Fergie SAYING he's less and less optimistic, whether things have been going on behind the scenes, and this is nailed on (hopefully). Doesn't look like Berbatov is staying at Spurs anyway...

Imagine Tottenham with just one principal striker, Darren Bent, on their books. now THAT would be untenable. I think Berbatov will be only allowed to leave if and when Spurs buy at least another striker before the window closes.

Maybe, hiano, but like Ronaldo for us, if Berbatov does stay with you, you can hardly expect him to be anything like fully comitted to Spurs. Don't make the same mistake I worry we have - grab the money and run!

I am doubting whether we will get him. We need to up our offer. With flops like Veron whats a extra few million for a proven quality player?
