After striker Dimitar Berbatov did not make the squad for Manchester United’s Champions League Final against Barcelona, The Metro reports that former club Tottenham Hotspur are in the market for Berbatov.
The Bulgarian forward spent two seasons at White Hart Lane, scoring 27 goals in 90 appearances, before his switch to Old Trafford in 2009. However, after he was snubbed for the biggest game in European club football last night by Sir Alex Ferguson, the rumour is that Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp would love to take Berbatov back to North London. Manchester United target Luka Modric may go the other way as part of the Berbatov deal, but it is expected that any deal to go through will be a loss on the £30 million the Red Devils paid for the Bulgarian.

He said: ‘I think it would be a great experience. At the moment, Wales haven’t qualified for a major tournament in I don’t know how many years so it would be nice to play in one against the best countries in the world.’ 21-year-old Bale has represented Wales 27 times internationally, scoring 3 goals.
