Man U closing in on Berbatov

With Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo hurt, and no new strikers on the books yet, Manchester United is in dire need of forward help and appears ready to break the bank to acquire that help.

Man U is closing in on Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov, with a reported $53.2 million transfer being the hefty price for the Bulgarian striker.

The Berbatov transfer situation affects more than just Tottenham and Man U. It could be the first in a series of dominoes, with Tottenham very likely to go after the likes of Andrei Arshavin and David Villa if it sells Berbatov for that price. It would also set the market for the likes of Samuel Eto’o and Emmanuel Adebayor.

I will add some other European soccer notes to this post shortly. For now, what do you think of Man U adding Berbatov? Will he fit in well with the Red Devils? Could Tottenham come out ahead by using the Berbatov money to land a trio of new players?
