Manchester United attempt to sign Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham. Reports have estimated that Spurs are asking for as much as £30m for Berbatov, which according to the source is a purposefully inflated price designed to inform United they do not want to sell to them. 'United did to Spurs what Real Madrid are currently doing over Cristiano Ronaldo by forcing the club's hand,' the source said.

But the claim was denied by a Spurs executive who insisted there is 'no bad blood between the clubs'. And if United are to land the Bulgarian they may have to find more than £30m and pay a fee far in excess of the record for a British transfer - £29m by Manchester United to Leeds for Rio Ferdinand in 2002 - as it is understood Manchester City had a £32m offer turned down last summer.
