The Sunday Mirror says Real Madrid are set to make a £25million move for Berbatov and Spurs' response is to offer the Bulgarian a pay rise that will take him into the £90,000-a-week bracket - but they want an answer in the next month.

What Tottenham want from Berbatov is a commitment for the next four years - and if he fails to sign a new contract, manager Juande Ramos is willing to sell.

If Real go for Berbatov, Tottenham could respond with an inquiry for Brazilian youngster Robinho.
