Redknapp and Berbatov worked together when the Bulgarian was plying his trade at Tottenham Hotspur, and having bemoaned the lack of striking options in his struggling QPR side – the Loftus Road club are second-from-bottom in the Premier League with 19 points – Redknapp may be tempted to make a move for the 33 year-old veteran.
Berbatov – who also enjoyed great success at Manchester United following his time at Spurs – is reportedly keen on a return to London and may be available for as little as £1m. This represents an affordable option for the Rs, and Redknapp is now ready to make an offer.
Although Berbatov’s current club Monaco are struggling in fifth place in Ligue 1 this season, the Bulgarian is their top scorer with six goals. He joined the principality in January of last year.
