NUFC Strike Target Slept In Newcastle Shirt As A Kid

8 years ago

The latest striker rumour sees a Dimitar Berbatov Newcastle move targeted for January.

The Fulham forward is claimed by his agent to be unhappy at Craven Cottage and with his contract due to end in the summer would be available at a ‘bargain’ price in January.

The Mirror, who first ran the story, claim that Ashley will not be making any big signings and with little transfer money available to Pardew, Newcastle will once again look at shorter term deals as they did with loan star Loic Remy in the summer.

While undoubtedly a massive talent, how exactly Berbatov would fit in with the current non-stop workrate of the current Newcastle team is another matter.

Berbatov was famously revealed to have fallen in love with Newcastle United and Alan Shearer as a kid, and his mother told the world, how her teenage son wore a United shirt bearing Shearer’s name to bed each night.

Whether we will see the striker pulling on a Newcastle Shirt once again is open to question.
