Manchester have completing the signing of the bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham. Manchester have been in contact with the striker whole summer. The player declared many times that would be a “dream come true” his possible move to Manchester. Berbatov also made photos with Manchester shirt and has also put his signature on them things that were  not welcomed by the supporters.
The Spurs opposed at every attempt from Manchester but finally they gave up. Also Bayern, Barcelona and Manchester City were interested in signing Berbatov, the last one even had an offer of £ 30 m accepted by Tottenham but the player wanted to move to United. Despite not having the permission to talk to the player they arranged a medical in Manchester and the player arrived at Old Trafford. The negotiations took a couple of hours. Finally the official web site of Tottenham announced that they agreed with Manchester for around £ 31 m.
As part of the transaction youngster Fraizer Campbell will join Spurs but only for a year on loan.
As a result Spurs have agreeded to not follow the initial complaint over an illegal aproach on the player.
Campbell had an excellent last season at Hull City were he was loaned, having an essential role in the team promotion to Premier League.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has only words of praise for the striker, considering him as a key player for the next season. Also the supporters are very delighted with the signing comparing him already with Eric Cantona.

    Finally Man Utd got the replacement for Nistelrooy and i am glad that Campbell is only on loan because he is a good player.
