The Sunday Mirror has today revealed that Dimitar Berbatov could be set for a sensational return to White Hart Lane this summer. The Bulgarian’s contract is due to expire at Manchester United next summer and contract negotiations have stalled.
Having spent £30 million on him in 2008 it is unlikely United will risk the chance of him leaving on a free transfer. The paper reports that Spurs would be unlikely to pay over £8 million for a 30 year old with no resale value.
During Berbatov’s 2 years at Spurs he played 102 games and scored 46 goals.

Parker talks could return.
The Daily Star today reports that Spurs will move for the newly crowned Football Writers’ player of the year Scott Parker this summer.
In an interview for the paper Redknapp said: “If they don’t stay up they’ve got a problem keeping the footballer of the year. We liked him but I don’t think we ever got close really – £15 million was a lot of money for his age.”
If West Ham fail to remain in the Premier League it is likely that Parker will have several offers but it is believed that he would favour a move to the club he supported as a boy.
Redknapp: Season not over.
Speaking after the draw with West Brom yesterday Harry Redknapp was keen to stress that he remains confident that Spurs will qualify for the Champions League again.
Speaking to Sky Sports Redknapp said: “It’s going to be difficult but it’s all still to play for. I find it hard now that everyone expects us to be in the Champions League. It’s difficult to get fourth. It has been a great season but it’s not over yet.”
Having performed so well in this seasons Champions League the club is desperate to retain their top four place. However, some feel that competing for domestic and European honours has taken its toll on the players.
