£30m transfer talk rages over top target...

Manchester United will no doubt be preparing to have their collective trousers pulled down by Spurs for the Reds top summer target Dimitar Berbatov. According to the latest news Fergie has sanctioned an opening bid of £20m, but Tottenham supremo Daniel Levy will demand at least £25m plus a player, or £30m cash. The North London club stand to make a £20m profit on the deal if it actually goes ahead. It's doubtful that Spurs manager Ramos will fancy being burdened with our very own one legged striker "Long John Silver" aka Louis Saha.

News of the proposed transfer comes as no surprise really, it's long been thought the Bulgarian would likely be the Reds only big signing this summer. Assuming that United are prepared to be shafted by Spurs over the fee I expect the deal to be pushed through. There shouldn't be any serious competition for Berbatov as the only other potential bidders are Liverpool but they appear to be cash-strapped.
