Both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have denied that the Old Trafford club have bid for striker Dimitar Berbatov.
United executive David Gill said: “We have categorically not made a bid for Dimitar Berbatov.”
Spurs reportedly added: “We have not received an offer and would not accept one if we did – it is as simple as that.”
The Bulgarian’s agent said United had ‘enquired’ while the quotes said ‘bid’. Regardless, Spurs manager Martin Jol is intent on keeping the 26-year-old.
He said: “Berbatov loves me. If he is playing well he gets all the praise and if he is not doing well I have to tell him.
“I had one approach and I said ‘I’d rather die than sell him’.”
i’m not so worried about berbs leaving as the news that nugent is about to sign for almost 10mill….he only went to portsmouth for 6m?!:evil:
