The papers practically trip over their legs in a hasty attempt to contradict each other in the Berbatov-saga. They are rather successful I must say.

I had said that I was highly doubtful that Berbatov would really be a United player by the end of the weekend and the clubs proved me right in spectacular fashion by apparently still unable to agree a fee for the 27-year-old.

Now, the Times says the move is on ice right now as Levy does not lower his demand from Ł32M to the Ł28M United offer. However, the Daily Mail reports that Berbatov is in Manchester to complete his medical which of course would mean that a fee had been agreed.

What’s the truth I don’t know but with only a little more than an hour to go until the registration deadline for the weekend’s Premiership opener against Newcastle it is very unlikely that Berbatov will feature against the Magpies.
