Ryan Giggs is convinced Dimitar Berbatov will be a big hit at Manchester United.
The Red Devils were only able to confirm Berbatov's �30million arrival from Spurs at 12.40am on September 2 after a frantic day of negotiations which included intense interest from cash-rich Manchester City at one stage.
"Berbatov is a Manchester United-type player," said the former Wales skipper. "He has that physique and stature because he is over six foot, so he offers something a little bit different to Wayne Rooney or Carlos Tevez. For a big man he has a superb touch."
He added: "But he also has a big personality, the personality you need to be a success at Manchester United."
Berbatov was on the scoresheet for Spurs as United salvaged a 1-1 draw in the last encounter between the two sides, and Giggs is relieved he will no longer have to face the skilful Bulgarian.
"I am glad Dimitar is on the same side as me," he added.
"I have seen his ability at first hand when he played against us for Tottenham.
"I am sure he will be an excellent signing."
