Newcastle eying Man U’s Berbatov

London: Newcastle is eager to sign striker Dimitar Berbatov in the wake of media reports that he wants to move out of Old Trafford.

According to a leading daily, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is ready to meet United``s 7.5 million pound demand.

Newcastle, in fact, has been looking for a striker after Andy Carroll was sold to Liverpool for 35 million pound in January.

Berbatov, 30, won the Golden Boot this season along with Manchester City``s Carlos Tevez after hitting 20 league goals, but he was inexplicably left out of Saturday``s Champions League final against Barcelona.

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

Newcastle, meanwhile, have landed French midfielder Yohan Cabaye from Lille for 4.3 million pounds.
