Spurs Get Adebayor For Next To Nothing

Spurs Get Adebayor For Next To Nothing

Tottenham have reportedly signed Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City for next to nothing.

In 2009 City paid Arsenal £25m for the Togolese striker but now the out-of-favour 'Bambi-on-ice' lookalike moves to White Hart Lane for an estimated £5.5m.

Adebayor will have to accept a drop in wages - he is reported to earn £170,000 a week at City - but this may be compensated for by a signing-on fee.

Personally I can't wait to see the back of him - good luck Ade!

It's a mistake on our behalf. AVB is proving already that he is just a "yes man" and agreeing to every suggestion that Levy makes. Adebayor does not score enough goals for a top 4 team and he doesn't fit the 4-3-3 formation we are likely to play. I can not believe we are going to pay him such a big signing on fee, the boy is lazy, and has a rubber foot that cannot control a good pass in his direction. His ability to shoot is rubbish, and is often offside, or sat on his arse with a whining look at the ref. Spurs made a MASSIVE Mistake wasting money on him, but more importantly he is taking up a striker spot that belonged to someone world class, or atleast half decent!

Better to get £5.5m now rather than nothing next season. Daniel tightar.se knows how to get players for nothing and sell for top dollah though. Ade should start to show his true colours now that he's got a new contract... glad to be rid.
