The sports manager of the Turkish football team Galatasaray, Bulent Tulun, has revealed that the club's negotiations with Bulgarian star striker, Dimitar Berbatov, have reached an advanced stage.

The news was reported Monday by the Bulgarian Standard daily, citing Turkish press.

"We are leading negotiations with players who will contribute very much to raising the level of our club. Berbatov is one of them. I would not want to tell now the names of the players we are close to signing contracts with. Negotiations with Berbatov are in an advanced stage," Tulun is quoted saying.

Again according to Turkish press, Berbatov's agent, Emil Danev, already held two meetings with the President of the Galatasaray club, Unal Aysal.

It seems 100% certain that the Bulgarian striker is going to leave Manchester United in the summer, after a disappointing season when he was forced to spent most games on the reserves bench.

Galatasaray have expressed strong interest in having Berbatov on several occasions, the last one in November 2011, when they came close to a contract. The latter fell through over the transfer amount deemed too low at the time.

Not that it surprises me in an apparent fan of this "game" where intelligence is a rude word but it seems that Hyperbole is a new planet in your rather limited universe.....

Shows how poorly read you are....

Firstly, they're not even in the same post, let alone the same sentence.

Secondly, .. well you're poorly read.

That's certainly the first time I've come across the words "football" and "intelligence" in the same sentence..... :D

shame - i was hoping liverpool might get him for a cheeky 6 million

terrible fit in man utd's style of play with their fast attacking down the flanks - he's more a second striker playmaker in the middle.

might do a good job at liverpool though as with our slow passing approach it needs a bit of a spark of creativity to unlock a defence that's had time to align.

And why not? Romania's greatest footballer, Gheorghe Haji ended his playing career there, so why not Berbatov?

Ha, that is from the biggest gal on the forums.

That you don’t know who/what is referred to shows a certain lack of intelligence.

Who is "Galatasaray" and why does he want to buy a "Berbatov"? Is it a new make of Bulgarian car?

I'm sure that the very few people who aren't already comatose at the mere mention of this "sport" are dying to know how they can get a life.....
