May 30 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable links to the Web.

Berbatov Goes

Striker Dimitar Berbatov is set to quit Manchester United after being left out of its Champions League final squad, the Sun reported.

Berbatov didn’t take his seat in the stands at Wembley stadium for the 3-1 loss against Barcelona or join teammates on the field after the game, the Sun said.

He started five of the last 20 games, the Sun added.

United may get rid of 10 members of the squad, with Michael Owen, Nani, Wes Brown, Bebe and Gabriel Obertan among those who could be elsewhere next season, the Guardian said.

Barcelona Bet

Barcelona will beat Tottenham to the 40 million pound ($65.9 million) signing of Villarreal’s Giuseppe Rossi, the Daily Mirror reported.

The Italian striker was a 32 million-pound target for Spurs in the January transfer window, the Mirror said.

Guardiola ‘Wanted’

Pep Guardiola is set to become Europe’s most wanted coach when he leaves Barcelona next year, the Daily Mirror reported.

Chelsea would “love” to hire Guardiola but because he’s not available yet will turn to Guus Hiddink, the Mirror said.

Tottenham Goalie

Tottenham offered Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Friedel a two-year contract, the Daily Mail reported.

The American is set to replace “error-prone” Heurelho Gomes as the No. 1 Spurs goalie, the Mail said.
