Chelsea are prepared to meet Tottenham's asking price for striker Dimitar Berbatov.

The Observer says Chelsea, set to lose Didier Drogba this summer, and Barcelona are the only two clubs prepared to pay Tottenham's £30m valuation of Berbatov.

But Emil Dantchev, Berbatov's agent, seemed to query Spurs' valuation.

"Speak to the club," he said. "I have no comment to make other than what I will say in general about the price of players - the market finds a natural valuation for them."
