Berbatov in talks at Carrington - but will heads roll if City capture United's top target?

Manchester United and Manchester City fans are in a total state of shock due to the amazing unfolding events at Eastlands. City, we are led to believe are about to be taken over by the mega rich Abu Dhabi United Group. Coming on the back of that news, the Blues look to have agreed a deal with Spurs over long term United target Dimitar Berbatov for a fee believed to over £30m.

However, despite the fact that City boss Mark Hughes has confirmed that City have had their cheeky bid accepted the player is in fact at Carrington in talks with Fergie.

If and it's a very big IF, Berbatov eventually decides to join City, it will leave United counting the cost of putting all of their transfer eggs into one basket on the search for a new striker.

Clearly if Berbatov doesn't sign for United and instead joins rivals City, questions will need to be answered as it will be hugely embarrassing for the likes of David Gill who is supposed handle transfers.

Ferguson in particular is likely to be livid with David Gill for allowing what will be described as a minor catastrophe for United. Having been crowned European and domestic champions it seems implausible that the Reds have been unable to make one significant signing as we heading into the final hours of the current window, especially given how quickly the Champions moved last summer in the transfer window.
