Manchester United Message Board
From the BBC site:
"As part of the deal, Spurs have agreed not to pursue their complaint to the Premier League over Manchester United's pursuit of Dimitar Berbatov."
So I guess it really doesn't matter if we had permission or not then!
and it might still happen. DIC are still waiting in the wings according to press reports, but not sure if Dubai can match Abu Dhabi for resources. But if it happens do you think we could become the petrol league. Maybe Saudi Arabia will buy out the Glazners, but who will buy Arsenal, Iraq, or Iran?
Depends on your viewpoint, and obviously our success is to some extent premised on SAF's ruthlessness in these matters.
Clause 2 of the League Managers' Association states:
" A manager shall not take any steps (including the making of statements to the media) to induce or which are intended to induce any player or other employee employed by another club to act in breach of the terms of his contract with that other club."
You will have to make your own mind up as to whether SAF (who is a member of LMA) broke this rule.

People just went a bit silly reading the deadline headlines instead of thinking. The most watched transfer saga, who really believed that United were performing a medical and talking to Berba without permission? You'd have to be daft to think that and believe the headlines such as "still unclear if United have permission ..."
