Adebayor: 'I'm Going To Juventus'

Adebayor: 'I'm Going To Juventus'

In a shocking admission to Sport/Foot Magazine, Emmanuel Adebayor claims that Italian giants Juventus have reached an agreement with Manchester City over a loan move in January.

The 26-year-old Togolese has so far failed to impress City boss Roberto Mancini this season, restricting the former Arsenal man to just a handful of starts.

The media has long been speculating over the future of the £25m striker, with rumours of a rift between manager and player growing each week. Previously this had been denied, but it appears that there is some substance behind the stories after all.

Adebayor finally broke his silence, publicly revealing his frustrations at not starting for City, declaring: 'I don't know what I did wrong to Roberto Mancini, but he never makes me play.

'I'm going to change air during the transfer window in January.

'And I can tell you that City has already reached an agreement with Juventus for a loan.

'I therefore expect to be able to leave in December.'


Juventus, the club that he has continued to be linked with the former African Player of the Year since his Arsenal days, are reported by Sky Sports to have already signed one non-EU player this season, even though new Serie A regulations allow for no more than one player from outside the EU to sign.

This would mean that either summer signing Milos Krasic is on his way, or Adebayor will be ineligible to play.

Adebayor has stated time and again he wants to head for the exit. Let him go. He can go play somewhere else for half the money and probably still struggle to hold down a place. If he put in the effort he did when he first came to City he would be automatic choice. The truth is he doesn't. Give me John Guidetti any time

Adebayor is not all there in the head, and despite the fact that Juventus are not allowed another foreign player he thinks he's going to Turin? Good luck to him, wonder where he'll end up when it all goes pear-shaped for him over there?

If that's the case then whats the situation with Robinho, Pato, Ronaldinho and Tiago Silva at AC Milan. Unless there's been a major recent continental movement Brazil used to be outisde the EU.

adebayor is more trouble than he's worth. He and Santa Cruz are both surplus for City in my opinion. As for Krasic. Juve would sooner change their name than sell him. He's been their best player this season

Do you think you would sell him to Spurs? A player of his mould would be perfect for our system
