Juande Ramos has admitted that there is no guarantee that Dimitar Berbartov will stay at Tottenham, while the transfer window remains open.
The Bulgarian’s long-term future at White Hart Lane has been the subject of intense speculation, and although Ramos insists the player is not for sale, he acknowledges that the club may be powerless to prevent him from leaving.
“We count on him, but while the market is still open there is always a risk because he is a great player and it is normal that there is interest,” Ramos told AS.
“But he is happy and is enjoying playing for the team so, it would have to be an offer from a very big club, with a very big contract to make him leave.”
Ramos did admit that he would be interested in signing Valencia’s out-of-favour midfielder David Albelda.
“I have had a good relationship with David for many years as I coached his brother at Alcoyano and at Levante,” Ramos continued.
“I asked him about his contractual situation because if he was leaving for free then I would be interested.
“But the situation with Valencia has not been solved and there was not much more to say, although we do have a good relationship.”
