Manchester United face serious competition from Barcelona for Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov.

The Sunday Mirror says 12 months ago United had a £25m offer for Berbatov refused. In May, Manchester City also failed to land the striker after offering £32m.

United face competition from Barcelona now that their interest in Arsenal's Emmanuel Adebayor has cooled.

United will not give up on landing Berbatov, who has expressed his desire to play in the Champions League.
