United Striker Linked With Shock £7.5m Move

Some really interesting transfer gossip lately as it has emerged that Newcastle are apparently in the race to sign Manchester United’s Dimitar Berbatov.

The Guardian confirms that United are ‘yet to exercise a one-way option to extend his contract by 12 months’ and reports that they are seemingly set on losing their Bulgarian striker. They however don’t report anything about a potential move to the toon….

It is in fact The Sun who thinks that the move might actually happen. Toon Boss Alan Padrew is ‘ready to meet United’s £7.5million valuation.’ After all, they had that 35 million pounds left over from when they sold Andy Carroll to Liverpool so I’m pretty sure splashing 7.5 million on this season’s co-golden boot winner ain’t that bad of an idea after all.

The question though is: Will Berbatov want to join Newcastle United? I personally think that he won’t and I personally don’t get why Newcastle would want him, from the dressing room problems to the motivational problems, it might not exactly be the best idea depending on the kind of form and mood he will be in if he moves to Newcastle.

But he’s still a quality player on his day, and he’s (sort of) proved that this season. Will he, won’t he: Comments section below!

    i’m a newcastle fan and i would be glad to welcome berbatov too the toon army not only because he’s a great striker and proven goalscorer but also he’s a lifelong newcastle fan and grew up idolising alan shearer and has always said he would love too follow in his heroes footsteps and i’m pretty sure (like the rest of us) if he was signed by the team he supports he wouldn’t b sulking and would truly relish the opportunity.

    would be a great signing

    @danny salford this is from his wiki page
    Early life

    Berbatov was born to Ivan and Margarita Berbatov, both themselves professional athletes: Ivan was a footballer with Pirin and CSKA Sofia,[6] while Margarita was a handball player.[8] His favoured team was the Italian club Milan, and he consequently modelled himself on Marco van Basten, the Dutch forward for that team. However, the 1996 European Championship, held in England, gave Berbatov a new role model; the 15-year-old Berbatov began to look up to the English front man Alan Shearer,[9] who played for Newcastle United. Berbatov’s mother later spoke of her son’s teenage dream of playing for Newcastle United, and said that his admiration for Shearer was such that, during these years, he slept in a Newcastle shirt.[10][11]

      I never knew that.I stand corrected lads. I thought he would have idolised Stoichkov/Barca if anyone. Everydays a school day. @ PorcieStreet, less caffeine for you my friend and you may talk less sh*t and not burst blood vessels on the internet
