Crystal Palace is looking for a striker to reinforce their attack.
Indeed the club has lost three strikers during the transfer window and is looking for a quality striker. There was news that Crystal Palace was seeking to sign Benteke from Liverpool during the summer, but they have been discouraged by the asking price. The Crystal Palace board is reported to be looking for cheaper alternatives.
One player that they might consider is DimitarBerbatov. The former Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester United striker is available on a free transfer and will not cost anything. The player has left Greek club PAOK on mutual consent and is currently looking for a club.
Former Red Devils striker Dimitar Berbatov has been linked to a move to two English Championship outfits Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest, according to reports.
The English Championship looks like one cracker with former English Premier League teams in Aston Villa and Newcastle joining but keen on returning to top flight football as quick as possible. There are lot of links that the Bulgarian striker is in talks with two Championship clubs and one is believed to be the Magpies.
There are reports that DimitarBerbatov might be considering a move to the Major League Soccer in the summer.
The former Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester United striker might be considering ending his career in the MLS.
News from Greece indicates that the former Bulgarian international might not renew his contract after its expiration in the summer and will seek a move to a MLS club. So far there is little information about the identity of the club and it is expected that the deal will be carried out in the summer.
Berbatov, who have joined PAOK in September, has only managed to make 14 appearances for the club with most of them coming as a substitute. He has scored 4 goals in the process.
Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris claims that it is time Tottenham fans forgot their glorious past that included players like Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane.
He has asked them to talk about the present and future. The Frenchman has been a major factor behind Spurs challenging for the title. He has been immense former club in every way since his move from Lyon a few years ago. Lloris’ quality has helped Tottenham gain reputation as the best defence in the Premier League. Previously, Spurs were seen as a team that can perform one day and get a thrashing on the other.
Even though he is an old bloke now and is not playing anywhere close to as well as he is capable of, Dimitar Berbatov is still wanted in some parts of the world and Australia is one of them.
The sources have provided the information that the Aussie top division team Melbourne Victory is negotiating terms with the former Bulgaria international and his club Salonika and the talks are progressing pretty well.
Berbatov, who has always been an erratic but a highly gifted player, has not been able to sparkle the Greek League in the way he was thought to do when he was brought into the Salonika folds.
Shakhtar Donetsk have managed to profit heavily from the sale of Alex Teixeira, who has joined the Chinese super league in a deal worth around € 50 million.
Backed by rich investors, Jiangsu Suning have been able to make this mega money signing that is expected to fuel more spending from this part of the world in the next few transfer windows.Teixeira has been amongst the transfer rumours for quite a while. Liverpool were seen as his preferred destination, but the Premier League club were not even close to Shakhtar Donetsk’s valuation of the player.
Due to violence in Ukraine, several high profile players have been expressing their desire to leave the country.
It seems Al Ain has had enough now with two of the star signings that they had made last year and the club is all set to get rid of them.
Ryan Babel is one of them yes, while, the other one is Emmanuel Emenike.
Both have proved to be complete failures in the top flight in United Arab Emirates.
Babel, in particular, has been on the target of the club fans, not only for his inability to produce the goals, but, also, for being undisciplined on occasions with his conduct.
Emenike, on the other hand, has been slightly better in comparison, but, he has not been able to do justice to his name either.
The Nigeria international had, however, joined Al Ain on loan only and in all probability, he would go back to his original club which is Fenerbahce.
Dimitar Berbatov has claimed that it is a pleasure to work with manager Igor Tudor at PAOK. The striker moved to the club in the summer on a one-year contract.
At three years of age, he is on his last legs in terms of a football career. However, he is confident of making an impact once again at a new club. Berbatov has been in the limelight for the last decade with clubs like Tottenham and Manchester United forming the base of a very successful career. After having last played for Monaco, the striker has decided to take on a new challenge in the form of PAOK.
Former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov could not seal a return to the Premier League after Aston Villa could not match his wage demands.
The striker was available on a free transfer after being released by Monaco at the end of last season. He has been without a club throughout the summer, but Berbatov was not prepared to drop his wage demands in order to secure a move to Villa. Moving to the Premier League club would have given him the opportunity to be a first choice regular once again since Villa only recently sold Christian Benteke to Liverpool.
Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has admitted that he would consider the probability of returning to the Premier league after having left Monaco following a short spell.
The Bulgarian joined Monaco at a time when they were seemingly on their way towards the top of French football. The scenario, though, has entirely shifted in the last few months, as Monaco have been cutting their budgets to great lengths. It was already a reason behind Radamel Falcao leaving the club on a short-term loan spell to Manchester United. More players are expected to part company with the club in the next few months.
