You have to pinch yourself to believe it
Double Player of the Year Teddy Sheringham has, according to Fulham boss Jean Tigana, demanded a two year, £40,000 a week, contract in order to leave Manchester United.

Tigana, a former agent, has now pulled the plug on any prospective deal for the 35 year old, leaving the door wide open for a return to Spurs.

With just six weeks left on his current £25,000 a week deal, Sheringham looks as though he'll reject United's offer of a one year contract for a move to join Glenn Hoddle at White Hart Lane, but whether Spurs' owners ENIC will sanction and £4m wage packet remains to be seen.

Tigana said: "You have to pinch yourself to believe it.

"Agents who think Fulham are going to spend here, there and everywhere because it is the club of a multi-millionnaire can stay at home.

"We were recently offered Sheringham, a 35-year-old player, with a contract of £2m a season over two years and Salomon Olembe, the Nantes midfield player, for £10m. But I handle Mr Al Fayed's money as if it were my own."
