    That £30m bid by man city has done the job for spurs. Now barbatov has two options...go to city or stay at spurs reserves.

    The third option is Man YOOO now have to match Citys offer.

    So what ever happens its a 'all win situration' for spurs.

    They make a £20m+ profit from a player who does not want to play for them and at the same time get the price they wanted to spend on other players.

    Its all win for Spurs?

    Berbatov is having a medical with Fergie holding his hand right now.

    Last time United gave Spurs some pocket money for Carrick you spent 17m on Bent and United won 2 Premier League Titles and the CL in the following 2 seasons.

    What you gonna do with 30m?
    Spend 20m on Heskey ROFL......

    Last time I looked Spurs were bottom of the league with WBA.
    It certainly is win win win for Spurs.


    Oh and Henry has been at OT all afternoon according to some reports

    So you can also buy Frazer Cambell from us for 7m.

    NO... we are not buying Cambell from you my friend. Old redface wanted to pay £22m for barbatov...it seems after Man Cities bid, Man U are playing £26m + Cambell (valused at £8m by Hull)

    So you are giving us £34M when you though you could get him for £22-24m

    I'd be surprised if Campbell goes.

    Also, if Berba says he doesn't want to join City, then Spurs have no option but to accept United's bid or let him rot in the reserves and get nothing for him next year.

    Having said that, I expect United to put in a very reasonable offer, which Spurs will gladly accept.

    i think you will find that united paid spurs the amount that spurs wanted

    Lets get real here, once United started 'tapping' barbatov up, there was no way Spurs were going to keep hold of him.

    The best they could do was to get United to pay the money Spurs wanted, which looks like what has happened now.

    Yes Spurs got a good price out of United 30.75m for Berbatov (and a year loan of Cambell).

    Don't tell me though its what Spurs wanted, especially after losing Keane (who looks like a bad buy for Liverpool), Spurs did not want to sell Berbatov, the best Spurs player since Gazza.

    Yes Berbatov was tapped up, there's always a bigger fish though.
    How exactly did Spurs get Ramos?

    Also after whats happened at Manchester City today, I think United will in retrospect be relieved we got him for that price.

    My god, they have just signed Robinho for 32.5m and it seems like they will have about 200m for players in the winter.
    They offered 35m for Berbatov and 150k a week in wages.
    This is going to greatly inflate the market, especially if they can outbid Chelski in the future.

    This City thing looks like it could have an enormous impact on the Premiership, could we see Arsenal or Liverpool get pushed out of the big 4 CL bracket.

    I think so within 2 years, how can they compete with the spending power of Chelsea and City?
    Luckily United can still spend big and have a young strong squad, so we are safe for the time being.

    Maybe also DIC won't be so interested in buying Liverpool.
    Do they want to compete with Chelsea and City over all the best players.
    We could soon see 50M transfer bidding wars.

    So you agree that Spurs are nothing more than a feeder club?

    While I'm not sure United should be spending £30m on 27 year olds, I think Campbell going to Spurs is a great deal for United.

    Considering how light weight Spurs are in that dept, he's guaranteed to get games in the Premiership. He's an excellent prospect and could return to United in a year's time as a 21 year old worth £20m, ready to slot straight into the United attack.

    Don't be silly, if eventually Manchester sells Ronaldo because they can't handle the pressure from Real, do you also think that makes United a "feeder" club?

    United more than proved they are no feeder club.
    Ther rejected a 55m bid from Real for Ronaldo, Ronaldo wanted to leave but United blocked the move.
    United sold Beckham, Van Nistelrooy and Heinz to Madrid because they wanted to and were old players.

    Real can't compete with the Premiership now.
    They have sold arguably their best player to Manchester City for 33m at age 23.
    What does that make Madrid?

    I think you need to realize what happened on September 1st.
    Manchester City are now by far the richest club in world football.
    According to reports them made combined bids of over 150m for 6 players in 12 hours and managed to land Robhino.

    Their number 1 target in the January transfer window is Ronaldo and they are saying we think it may take a bid of 120m english pounds to land him, this is not a problem for us.

    If they bid 120m for Ronaldo, I'm sure they will get him and this is just the start.
    They also have Torres and a number of other world class targets in their sights.

    They don't care about paying over inflated prices.

    One report claims that every dollar increase in the price of oil earns the family an extra $500m dollars A DAY.

    According to reports they have family funds in the region of trillions of pounds available.
    This makes Chelsea, Madrid and United small fish now, if its true.

    I wouldn't be surprized to see Kaka, Torres and Messi at City within 1 year the way these new guys are talking and acting in 1 day.

    Right now though, I'm not too worried.
    With a strike force of Berbatov, Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez at United.
    Its you lot that should be worried.
