Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane short odds to leave Spurs

All the bookmakers are now taking bets on transfer speculation - and Dimitar Berbatov is causing plenty of activity.  Berbatov is now 1/2 (2/1 on) to leave Spurs this summer after speculation in The People (13.07.2008) that Spurs will let the player join Manchester United if United raise their initial bid (if it happened) of £20m to closer to £25m.  Mischievously The People also suggest that Spurs assistant, Gus Poyet, could become the new Manchester United number two.

The other two big money strikers at Spurs are short odds to leave the north London club.  Robbie Keane is 11/10 to leave (probably to Liverpool) with Darren Bent 6/4 to go (probably to Sunderland).

Despite the possible loss of their front-line Spurs are odds-on to finish in the top six.

Ladbrokes spokesman, Nick Weinberg, said:

"Berbatov has made no secret of his desire to play Champions League football, which would suggest that a move is likely."


Who'll leave Spurs first
Berbatov   10/11
Keane      15/8
Bent         3/1

Who'll be at Spurs next season?
Berbatov Yes: 6/4     No: 1/2
Keane    Yes: 4/6     No: 11/10
Bent     Yes: 1/2     No: 6/4

Spurs season 2008/09
top four: 6/1
top six:  8/11

Win a major trophy (Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Cup)  7/4
