Pardew to offer Berba New start

Post  1892NUFF on Tue May 31, 2011 10:29 am

NEWCASTLE are in the hunt to sign Dimitar Berbatov.

The Bulgarian striker wants out of Manchester United after his shock Champions League final snub.

And Toon boss Alan Pardew is ready to meet United's £7.5million valuation.

Pardew is in the market for a big-name striker after Andy Carroll was sold to Liverpool for £35m in January.

Berbatov, 30, won the golden boot this season along with Manchester City's Carlos Tevez after hitting 20 league goals.

But he did not even make the bench for Saturday's Euro decider against Barcelona.

Now he wants a club where he is regarded as the main man and not down the pecking order.

Berbatov, who cost United £30.75m in September 2008, has always liked Newcastle having idolised Toon legend Alan Shearer when he was a boy.

The former Tottenham star did not travel home with United after his Champions League final axing.

He did, however, turn up for the club's victory parade through Manchester yesterday to celebrate their 19th league title.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have landed French midfielder Yohan Cabaye from Lille for £4.3m.

Cabaye, 25, confirmed the switch to St James' Park after Toon triggered a release clause in his contract.

He will sign a four-year deal in the north-east after Newcastle beat the likes of Valencia, Aston Villa and Lyon to his services.
