    cant find transfer thread - true about city bidding for berbatov - lovin' it

    Man City launch bid for Berbatov

    Berbatov has admitted he is keen to leave Spurs to play in the Champions League
    Manchester City have made a bid in excess of £30m to sign Spurs' Dimitar Berbatov from under the noses of rivals United, BBC Sport understands.

    The striker, 27, has been linked with Manchester United all summer, but the Red Devils have been reluctant to pay Tottenham's asking price.

    But City's new owners Abu Dhabi United Group have tabled a serious bid.

    "We have made an offer and I think it's agreed between ourselves and Spurs," boss Mark Hughes told Sky Sports.

    "Now it's up to the boy to decide."

    City are also believed to eyeing Valencia striker David Villa and Stuttgart's Mario Gomez.

    I wanted the resources to compete at the top table and it looks like that's what I have got

    Mark Hughes
    The club chased the signature of Brazilian star Ronaldinho before he decided to join AC Milan.

    It seems highly unlikely that Berbatov would opt to move to Eastlands after admitting his desire to play Champions League football was the reason for his wish to leave Tottenham.

    But with time running out on a move to Old Trafford before the transfer window closes, Berbatov could be left with a decision to join the City revival or mend his bridges at Spurs.

    Hughes, who said he expects to meet with Berbatov on Monday, admitted the turnaround in the club's fortunes has surprised both himself and the fans.

    I hope he goes to City (as a Spurs fan). It would serve United right for unsettling the player and club in the first place, offering way below the real value in the hope Spurs cut their losses on a player otherwise destined to rot in the reserves.

    Heard an interview with Hughes a short while ago and the other was confirmed by him. Berbatov is apparently speaking with the club right now.

    As predicted its a fun packed final day of the transfer window.

    Just been reported that he is on his way with Ferguson to uniteds training ground...

    It is a fun packed one guv but I reckon if Berbatov goes to city Fergie will have something else lined up... It'll be fun for the next 7 and a half hours...

    Hehe. Just shows how much that is reported is rumours! He cant be in two places at once (though would be good if we could fool 'em both and get £60M for him!!!) :w00t:

    Liverpool are brassic ATM. Ars*nal have some cash, but Wenger thinks its his own money for some reason and wont spend. Surprising given he needs to strengthen his squad. (Though Berby was never on the cards for a move over to "there".)

    Ooooh! Thats interesting. Just spotted this on Sky Sports News.

    Tottenham have stated they have accepted the Man City Bid - and go on to say they have NOT given Berbatov permission to talk to Man U......yet he's currently (allegedly) speaking to Fergusson. Naughty Fergie, naughty!!!!
