Dimitar Berbatov set to spurn Spurs for the nouveau riche

Boris Streubel

Three strikers for the rest of the season it is.

The Dimitar Berbatov dream looks dead.

Of course it is the Mail, but Monaco are looking for a striker to replace Radamel Falcao until the summer and have the money, while Berbatov's move to Tottenham Hotspur always appeared to be a bit complicated so odds are this is true.

We had a dream, folks. We dreamed that our beloved chain smoking Bulgarian would return to White Hart Lane, walk around for 80 minutes a match and make us fall in love for the other 10. It was such a beautiful dream.

With Berbatov out of the picture, Spurs really do look set to finish the season with just Emmanuel Adebayor, Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane at forward. Say your Hail Mary's.
