Dimitar Berbatov's Move To Manchester United: A Done Deal?...

Salaar Shamsi@SalaarizationSenior Writer IAugust 16, 2008

From Cristiano Ronaldo to Gareth Barry to Emmanuel Adebayor to Dimitar Berbatov, I for one have been frustrated by this summer's transfer sagas.

However, it appears Dimitar Berbatov's stop-start move to Manchester United is nearing an end after Sir Alex Ferguson claimed he was going to land a striker within August.

David Villa looks set to stay at Valencia like David Silva, who said no to the European Champions. Klaas Jan Huntelaar is not on Sir Alex's current wish list which means look no further then the Bulgarian himself.

Dimitar Berbatov was left on Tottenham's bench in Saturday's clash against Middlesborough, adding fuel to fire that the Bulgarian was close on completing a move to the Red Devils after handing in a formal transfer request on Thursday.

I was going through a number of the British Tabloids and quite a few of them including the Sunday Express, The People, the Sunday Mirror and the Telegraph quote "Dimitar Berbatov's move to Manchester United will certainly be completed within the week."

Interestingly enough, quite a few tabloids also suggest that they are not after Arshavin anymore which means if Berbatov leaves, Spurs will be left with Darren Bent and Giovanni Dos Santos as their only forwards.

Can anybody see more twists and turns in this transfer saga?
