there is nothing official yet about looks it was only a silly rumours
Definately. Cantona was more than just a great player. He somewat represents the rebirth of United as far as getting us to the top. He led our team and left an impression on the Class of 92. Berbatov may be a very, very good player and his style may be similar to Eric's, but he will ever have the status or make the impact that Eric did. Atleast its HIGHLY unlikely anyway.Drew9 said:Crooney, you're one opinionated lad as everyone knows but some of your points just make me laugh.
People at OT, for example the people i go to watch United with compare him with Cantona because of his ability, his precense, and his ora on a football pitch, 'the moody magiction' nobody would dare compar Cantona's character or importance because in many ways Cantona put Man Utd back on the map in the 90's. The truth is the only player who has come close to Cantona in terms of influencing a game is Ronaldo, and he will never come close to Cantona as a legend because of his character and personality, saying Berba would be like signing a new Cantona was meant as a compliment to Dimitar Berbatov, not a disrespect to the KING ERIC CANTONA, i hope this clears things up.

BERBATOV UNITED MOVE HITS Â£3M HITCH
Manchester United and Tottenham were last night still haggling over a fee for Dimitar Berbatov.
United are understood to have upped their initial bid from Â£20million to Â£25m while Spurs have lowered their original valuation of the Bulgaria striker from Â£32m to Â£28m.
But that still leaves a Â£3m difference and Spurs are not keen to go any lower, with Zenit St Petersburg playing a similar game of hard-ball over Andrei Arshavin, priced at Â£21m.
As the clubs seek a compromise, Berbatov has been left in limbo.
Spurs want to soften the blow of losing Berbatov by making sure Arshavin arrives at the same time â€“ while with last season's 42-goal top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo out until October, Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to strengthen his strikeforce to avoid being left in the blocks in the title race.
The difference could be made up by extra payments related to United's success in the Premier and Champions League and domestic cup competitions, plus the number of games Berbatov plays.
As Dimitar Berbatov waited last night for a breakthrough over his projected Â£28million transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Manchester United, the Premier League demanded more evidence from both clubs over the allegation of an illegal approach by the English and European champions.
