City Target Dimitar Berbatov

Manchester City are believed to be in the hunt for Tottenham's Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov.

With the transfer clock ticking City are going to have to move fast, especially with the Reds locked in transfer talks with the 27-year-old.

Should the deal go through, new owners, Abu Dhabi United Group for Development and Investment will be more than pleased to splash out £28m for the six foot three forward.

We'd probably sell to city both to get him out the way and spite Utd, can't see him being too keen on the move tho

Please Citeh buy him, I dont want him 2 go 2 those 'Orrible C-LI-N-T-S down the road from u lot. However, as good as he is, would u really want the miserable C-LI-N-T there? The only thing standing in your way is that Berbatov wouldnt want to sign for you and I dont mean it in a disrespectful way City, but if Berba was to go to you it would be a massive backwards step from where he is right now.

Petrov went to City because we ended our interest in him. We refused to pay the fee deanded by Athletico and he publicly stated that he wanted to join Spurs then quickly retracted it to go on to sign for City who offered him more money. Same thing happened with Lucas Neill. Liverpool wanted him and were willing to pay him £40k a week, yet West Spam offered him £75k a week and club captaincy and he took it. TOP TOP Players dont do this though which is why I (unfortunately) think Berba will still sign for MANURE

Berbatov will join his mate Rigsby because he knows he will be a regular choice and will be in the Champions League next season.

Correct Exil we matched the fee £4.7m I believe just didn't want to pay the extortionate salary - wasn't down to playing time Lillywhite - because if it was down to playing time I think we have been short of a LW for a while...

I really genuinely hope you get him City. The fact that he has burned all bridges now at spurs, means he wont play again for us so as long as United dont get him and we get the full reported £28m, I will be on with a congratulatory cheer for you all

Was amazed Corluka signed a 6-year deal. One of the longest on record I would have thought. Yes, he is quality through and through. I would also say his best years are still ahead of him. Good signing guys.

Apparantly Charlie and Modric are best friends. He stayed on the pitch after the Sunderland thrashing to say goodbye. Pace is his problem, but technically superb.

Haha I LOVE IT!!! Berbatov to City!!! 32million!!!! A big Up Yours to Fergie from Daniel Levy and Manchester City. And you have to laugh at Berbatov. Youve been a big baby despite being a Hero at Spurs and now youve only engineered a move to Man City haha!!! W*nker!!!! And even if he rejects Man City, Manure will be forced to up there bid by millions and Levy will have won. And Corluka has signed!!! Im sooo Happy!!!
