WILL BERBATOV MAKE THE GRADE?


Press reports indicate that Manchester United are in the hunt for Tottenham's striker Dimitar Berbatov. The Bulgarian hit-man has lit the Premier League with his blistering goals since joining from Bayer Leverkusen two years ago. However, he has made his desire to play Champions League football a public secret and according to his agent, Manchester United are the ideal club for him. After being linked with a number of strikers over the past few weeks, it seems that it is the attack that Fergie will strengthen after all. Berbatov,unlike Rooney and Tevez, is an out and out striker who will essentially give United what they have been missing from Saha. Some critics think that United will revert to the "give Ruud the ball " style at the expense of sharing the goalscoring burden style,that was adopted when Ruud left. Others have gone ahead to point out his weakness-lazy on pitch. I think that that is his strength. He easily explodes into life when in possession and that catches defenders in a slumber. His age(28)however,does not befit the hefty transfer that Spurs are asking for (28m pounds) because United are likely to get 2 or 3 good seasons out of him. But who knows, he could be worth it! Having said all that, United are yet to sign him!
