The Daily Mail reported yersterday that Dimitar Berbatov sealed a loan move to Monaco and snubbed one of his former clubs to the shock of punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
Our landlord notes that we had at one point thought that the Bulgarian forward would join a side in North London, with both former club Tottenham Hotspur and also Arsenal interested.
As our exhausted landlord notes, both sides were in dire need of a forward, and the fact that neither of them managed to land of their targets is not exactly good news for either of them.
Fulham meanwhile are in a relegation dog fight and are looking to revamp their squad in order to stay up – with Berba not exactly making the cut.
Lewis Holtby however did, with a loan move being sealed for the Spurs player.
Radamel Falcao is as we have lamented here in the tavern, out for the rest of the season, meaning that Claudio Ranieri simply had to move for an alternative.
With options thin on the ground, Monaco decided to opt for Berbatov and have handed him the number 15 shirt at the Stade Louis II.
Is Monaco the perfect destination for a ‘cigar footballer’ such as Berbatov? Let us know your thoughts below.
