Earlier today I reported that Manchester City had put in a bid for our top transfer target, Dimitar Berbatov, around the £30 million mark.

There is talk of four players joining the blues today following the takeover by people who supposedly dwarf Roman Abromovich’s riches.

Before going off for a game of golf, Mark Hughes confirmed that a record bid had gone in for the player and Tottenham Hotspur had accepted it.

The Bulgarian striker is currently on his way to Manchester, where he will conduct talks with Sparky. We would have to hope that United match the bid sometime soon, so we can also hold talks with the player.

Squeaky bum time!

“I’m as stunned and excited by this as the fans are,” said Hughes. I’m not entirely sure why, because the chances of him being manager at the start of next season are slim to none. The new owners want to win the league and Champions League, so don’t be overly surprised if the next manager to win the Champions League (if it isn’t Sir Alex Ferguson of course!) replaces Hughes next summer!
