Former Tottenham and Monaco striker Dimitar Berbatov is set to start training with former employers Manchester United as he considers a return to the league that brought him to the spotlight.
Berbatov who is currently out of contract after leaving POAK in the summer, is heavily linked with a return to Premier League club Swansea after manager Bob Bradly revealed the former United goal poacher is on his radar.
Dimitar Berbatov has come out to throw his full weight behind ace striker, Vincent Janssen.
This comes on the heels of the former AZ Alkmaar player' inability to find his form and start scoring for the club.
Janssen was recently signed by Tottenham during the transfer window in summer. However the past few weeks have seen Spurs go low on goals with the absence of their star striker, Harry Kane. Berbatov, believes Janssen would soon adapt to playing at Spurs and begin to score soon enough.
It is understood that DimitarBerbatov turned down a potential move to Al Ahly after the club failed to retain the services of manager Martin Jol.
The Dutchman enjoys a special relationship with the Bulgarian striker after having been in charge of the player at two of his previous clubs. Jol was the manager who bought Berbatov to English football when he was at Tottenham. This turned out to be one of the best spells in his career for the Bulgarian striker, who was previously plying his trade in German football.
Crystal Palace is looking for a striker to reinforce their attack.
Indeed the club has lost three strikers during the transfer window and is looking for a quality striker. There was news that Crystal Palace was seeking to sign Benteke from Liverpool during the summer, but they have been discouraged by the asking price. The Crystal Palace board is reported to be looking for cheaper alternatives.
One player that they might consider is DimitarBerbatov. The former Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester United striker is available on a free transfer and will not cost anything. The player has left Greek club PAOK on mutual consent and is currently looking for a club.
Former Red Devils striker Dimitar Berbatov has been linked to a move to two English Championship outfits Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest, according to reports.
The English Championship looks like one cracker with former English Premier League teams in Aston Villa and Newcastle joining but keen on returning to top flight football as quick as possible. There are lot of links that the Bulgarian striker is in talks with two Championship clubs and one is believed to be the Magpies.
There are reports that DimitarBerbatov might be considering a move to the Major League Soccer in the summer.
The former Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester United striker might be considering ending his career in the MLS.
News from Greece indicates that the former Bulgarian international might not renew his contract after its expiration in the summer and will seek a move to a MLS club. So far there is little information about the identity of the club and it is expected that the deal will be carried out in the summer.
Berbatov, who have joined PAOK in September, has only managed to make 14 appearances for the club with most of them coming as a substitute. He has scored 4 goals in the process.
Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris claims that it is time Tottenham fans forgot their glorious past that included players like Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane.
He has asked them to talk about the present and future. The Frenchman has been a major factor behind Spurs challenging for the title. He has been immense former club in every way since his move from Lyon a few years ago. Lloris’ quality has helped Tottenham gain reputation as the best defence in the Premier League. Previously, Spurs were seen as a team that can perform one day and get a thrashing on the other.
Even though he is an old bloke now and is not playing anywhere close to as well as he is capable of, Dimitar Berbatov is still wanted in some parts of the world and Australia is one of them.
The sources have provided the information that the Aussie top division team Melbourne Victory is negotiating terms with the former Bulgaria international and his club Salonika and the talks are progressing pretty well.
Berbatov, who has always been an erratic but a highly gifted player, has not been able to sparkle the Greek League in the way he was thought to do when he was brought into the Salonika folds.
Shakhtar Donetsk have managed to profit heavily from the sale of Alex Teixeira, who has joined the Chinese super league in a deal worth around € 50 million.
Backed by rich investors, Jiangsu Suning have been able to make this mega money signing that is expected to fuel more spending from this part of the world in the next few transfer windows.Teixeira has been amongst the transfer rumours for quite a while. Liverpool were seen as his preferred destination, but the Premier League club were not even close to Shakhtar Donetsk’s valuation of the player.
Due to violence in Ukraine, several high profile players have been expressing their desire to leave the country.
It seems Al Ain has had enough now with two of the star signings that they had made last year and the club is all set to get rid of them.
Ryan Babel is one of them yes, while, the other one is Emmanuel Emenike.
Both have proved to be complete failures in the top flight in United Arab Emirates.
Babel, in particular, has been on the target of the club fans, not only for his inability to produce the goals, but, also, for being undisciplined on occasions with his conduct.
Emenike, on the other hand, has been slightly better in comparison, but, he has not been able to do justice to his name either.
The Nigeria international had, however, joined Al Ain on loan only and in all probability, he would go back to his original club which is Fenerbahce.
