Berbatov pleads for 'dream move' to Man Utd

Dimitar Berbatov has given the first indication that he is keen to leave Tottenham Hotspur by asking the club to give him the chance to 'follow my dream'.

The Bulgarian has been the subject of interest from Manchester United during the summer transfer window and the Red Devils are believed to have had a bid of £20.5million rejected last week, though the two clubs are now believed closer to agreeing a fee.

Ahead of his country's midweek friendly with Bosnia-Herzegovina, Berbatov has made it clear that he wants to leave White Hart Lane and took his demotion to the bench this weekend with noticeable frustration.

'I'm now in Tottenham but no one can disagree with me wanting to follow my dream,' he told The Times.

'If I had been laughing when I was on the bench, people would say I was an idiot,' he said.

'Eric Cantona never smiled, but I don't know if anyone ever asked him why he didn't look happier.'

Meanwhile, with only a few weeks before the transfer window ends, Emil Dantchev, the 27-year-old's agent, said: 'We have two more weeks until the end of the transfer window and I think this will be the most important week.

'I read Alex Ferguson's statement that he wants another striker and I hope that this striker is Dimitar Berbatov.'

Ferguson is expected to offload Louis Saha once a deal is agreed for Berbatov, with AS Roma continuing to show an interest in the France forward.
