Man City rival Man Utd for Tottenham's Berbatov

Manchester City are planning a mega bid for Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov.

The Mail on Sunday says City have not been deterred by Spurs' apparent refusal to discuss the possibility of selling Berbatov. They are heartened by the Bulgarian's reticence when it comes to discussing his future at White Hart Lane and inside knowledge that the club could be willing to do business at the right price.

That would spark a reaction from Manchester United, whose manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has a long-standing regard for a player he has inquired about more than once.
