Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson has cast doubt on Dimitar Berbatov's move to Fulham by suggesting the frontman could be bound for Tottenham instead.
Ferguson admitted at his weekly press conference on Friday morning that he had no idea where the wantaway player was.
'There has not been any contact from him. We thought he was in Italy, but it turned out he isn't. He could be anywhere. I really mean that.
'I wouldn't be surprised if he's at Tottenham. There are rumours going around. I do not think it's settled at Fulham, put it that way.'
His comments have poured cold water on Fulham manager Martin Jol's claims on Thursday that Berbatov was set to sign for £5m.
Jol had hailed the signing as the 'biggest in the club's history' as the Bulgarian had rejected offers from Juventus and Fiorentina to work under his former Tottenham boss.
If Ferguson's comments about a return to Tottenham are true, it will add insult to injury for Fulham fans, who have seen Mousa Dembele leave for White Hart Lane for £15m this week.
