According to those in the know, a deal has been done with Man Utd and Berbatov is on his way to Old Trafford in a deal worth at least £25m. This won’t come as a shock to anyone and although a player with that amount of talent will be a loss, it was unlikely Spurs would be able to keep hold of him again this season and for that kind of money we can’t really complain.
For the past few weeks it’s been reported that David Bentley to Spurs was also a done deal but according to official reports, Aston Villa have lodged and 11th hour bid. The story going around seems to be that this is just to give Spurs the hurry up and Villa actually came in with this bid last week. Bentley wants to go back to London and it will be a surprise if he ends up at Villa rather than Spurs but it’s still a possibility.
Berbatov was never going to stay at Spurs.
