Great News !!!!manutdforever said:ALEX FERGUSON aims to land Dimitar Berbatov in a Â£25million deal by the end of next week.
The Manchester United boss has had a Â£22m bid rejected with Tottenham wanting Â£30m.
United will go to Â£25m and believe that will be enough to secure the unsettled striker.
Ferguson said: â€œWe are looking at some options at the moment â€” three or four different options about the strike department which we hope will come to a happy conclusion.
â€œHopefully we will have someone in for the start of the season.â€
Tottenham have been playing hardball with United, even reporting them to the Premier League for their pursuit of the striker.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy accused Ferguson of arrogance and hypocrisy after he was quoted as saying Berbatov was their target and he expected to get him.
Fergie is desperate to beef up his attack with Cristiano Ronaldo out until October and Louis Saha injured yet again.
manutdforever said:DIMITAR BERBATOV last night handed Tottenham a transfer request in a bid to force his dream move to Manchester United.
And the striker will be on the bench at Middlesbrough today.
A close pal of the Bulgarian said: â€œDimi's decided to put in a transfer request.
"He can't wait to go to Old Trafford and play for United.
â€œHe feels he behaved professionally throughout this period.
"He has never spoken publicly on the situation out of respect for Tottenham.
"But he does not want to miss out on the start of United's season and he feels that was his only option left.â€
Berbatov, 27, took action as his move to Old Trafford has stalled over the transfer fee.
Spurs want Â£30million but United have offered Â£20m.
Fergie said last night: â€œYou might be surprised at what's going to happen over the next two days.â€
Tottenham are thinking of bringing Seville striker Fredi Kanoute back to White Hart Lane.
But they are baulking at a Â£12m fee for a 30-year-old.
