Final Bid For Berbatov

The Berbatov transfer saga must draw to a close soon - at least because the transfer window will close on August 31. But it looks like that the striker will get his wish.

News of the World reports that United have made a final, Ł25M bid for the Bulgarian striker and are now waiting for Spurs's response. Fergie and Gill were no doubt encouraged by the fact that Berbatov had been left out of the Spurs squad for the game against Sunderland because Juande Ramos believes the striker is not focused enough.

Such a statement is likely to mean that Berbatov has no future at Spurs - his boss believes his effect is detrimental to the rest of the squad and their relationship appears to be close to breaking point. With one week to go and no other bidder in sight it is unlikely that Spurs will risk losing that Ł25m which is very good money. They cannot really play the hard game any more - they've got little choice. The sensible thing would be to accept the bid and bade farewell to Berbatov.

We do have a choice, we could say 30m or he stays and rots in our stiffs, but what point would that achieve, none ? We should swallow our pride, you can have the majestic and sublimely gifted t*** called Berbatov, i will miss him, he is undoubtable one of the most gifted footballers i have had the pleasure too watch, but what he has done to my beloved THFC is a disgrace, you can have him and good ridance.

if he does sign for united lets hope his attitude isn't a detriment to our team. theres no necessarily ease way in transfering to an adversary these days, but i must feel sorry for the spurs fans on how he has treated them. he's an outstanding talent but his attitude is hardly desirable. he's not a tevez thatll work his ********* off, i hope fergy knows what he's doing. id much prefer a more humble and dedicated character like huntelaar for example.

Aussie'spur is right though. They could simply say no and employ the same tactics we were determined to employ during the Ronaldogate. I think though that we could have withstood such a situation, that is without ronaldo. We could still buy another player or smth. But i think the Spurs cant go through such a decision. Of couse i think fergie would have sold him instead. He was playing his last card and he won

the difference is that spurs have admitted defeat with regard to the players decision whereas fergie managed to once again convince our arrogant and pompus pr**k of a player CR7

Maybe if Ronaldo hadn't been injured he'd have forced a move in the same way from you guys, maybe you'll have it all to look forward to again in Janusry, and next summer, and next January, as we have had to endure. Maybe if you'd got your hands in your pockets a month ago instead of making a derisory 20 Million offer, we'd have all been happily working with our new squads as we speak. I used to have a lot of time for Dimi though, and I truly hope that he slots into your team as well as .... well as well as Keane is doing without him at Liverpool. LOL. Good luck against Pompey guys we need help against the little teams we don't know how close we'll be next MAY!!!

I think, yes, it would be best for everyone to get this out of the way as quickly as possible. I don't blame Spurs for wanting Berbatov to stay - I think most clubs would - but someone who is disinterested and not at all motivated to the club's cause is no help at all. (I still worry about the effect Ronaldo is going to have/ is having on our team). As for United, we clearly need a striker, and if the Berbatov deal went through today, that would be a massive lift before the potentially tricky game at Fratton Park.

It's no longer a case of wanting him to stay for me, it's outrage if we don't get given a fair price. 32 million for Tevez? 25 Million for Berbatov my arse. Would rather give him to Chelsea and watch Alex explode TBH. When you cannot score against Portsmouth give us a call and have your cheque-book ready.
