Looks like there is going to be a transfer war between Manchester United and Barcelona over the signature of Berbatov. Earlier it looked that Berbatov was heading for Manchester when Sir Alex said that he was almost sure that Berbatov will sign for Man Utd by the end of this month. It is reported that united have made a bid of around $20 million for the Bulgarian forward. Though Tottenham have rejected the bid and also reported Man Utd and Liverpool to FA for pursuing both there forwards, it looks as if they are going to lose both there forwards.
Barcelona seems to be a new club that has joined the race for Berbatov. After not progressing in there negotiations with Arsenal over Adebayor, it seems they are going to make a bid of around $24 million for Berbatov. One advantage they have is that, they can also offer Samuel Eto to Tottenham as a bait for Berbatov. But I highly doubt that Eto will want to come to Barcelona. But what will Berbatov do, he already snubbed United once, will he do it again ? If Berbatov moves to Barcelona, then another player that Man Utd can pursue is Samuel Eto. With Barcelona no longer wanting the forward, he would be an easy target. Though I am a bit amazed to see that no clubs such as AC Milan, Liverpool etc are going for Eto who is available and is also a proven goal scorer at the top level.
