Adebayor Going Nowhere If Spurs Pay Cut Refused

Adebayor Going Nowhere If Spurs Pay Cut Refused

Emmanuel Adebayor's stand off with Manchester City over seeking a pay off has been brought to an abrupt end leaving the player alone to negotiate his salary with Spurs...

Having previously declared love at Arsenal, City and Real Madrid, Adebayor has said similar of his time at Tottenham Hotspur. That much we know. Yet the player to date point blank refuses to accept a pay cut in leaving The Blues for Spurs despite The Champions and the London club agreeing a £5m fee. That's certainly a far cry from the £25m that The Citizens paid Arsenal under Mark Hughes three years ago last month. Adebayor is prepared to accept Spurs' £100,000 per week offer but only if City will cover the loss from his current salary. That's variously quoted as being around £150,000 to £175,000.

Roberto Mancini from the moment he double subbed Robinho at Everton proved he can handle the games prima donna's and the Togolese striker, who has benefitted from huge support during his time in Manchester is no exception. If he fails to seal a deal with Tottenham or find another club then into the reserves he will go.

Adebayor's time at City has been a great shame all told as the lad now should be running into the form and peak of his career. If motivated, he can be one of the most formidable strikers on the planet. Here's hoping a move can be resolved quickly. Over to you, AVB.

Spurs should sort this by paying a £4m signing-on fee - still a bargain! Hurry up please!

Having negotiated a fee with Man City for the measly sum of £5m with a reported £5m signing on fee and £110K - £115K salary why is it not signing on the dotted line. Surely at 28 years old he should now be wanting to put football first as he has only about 4 years of peak form left and then his top level football days are done. I have a feeling Spurs will walk away from this and look elsewhere. This is the problem with signing players on stupid salaries, it benefits no one at the end of the day.

This one has certainly come back to bite City on the backside, Bristol.

Citys' problem. Just because they pay obscene wages to footballers they're not even serious about starting... lol. They expect Spurs to over-budget to compensate? So many wrongs. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Either sort it, or keep him in your reserves at around £8m. Bye, bye RVP. Maybe another time... Then there's Carlos. And Santa. Spurs in no rush {clearly...} and needn't be. Plenty more fish. And if the deal doesn't go through, yes we still need a striker, but City still got to get rid of 3 to get 1 in.

As a City fan I could not care less if he stews in our reserves and runs out his contract, its now up to ADE to decide.

@Jerkinmahjurgen. Yes it is City's problem and that is why they're willing to take a massive hit on his transfer. When Adebayor was signed by the previous manager he started quite frequently. They don't expect Spurs to overbudget, that's evident in the fact that they struck a deal with Spurs for about a third of his value. Spurs needn't be in any rush eh? Defoe will carry you through, will he? The closer we get to the end of the window the more desperate Spurs will become to fill the massive striker shaped holes in their squad, the more desperate they become the better for the selling club, so if Spurs don't give into Ade's demands for compensation on his wages they could end up paying three, maybe four times the amount for a striker of Adebayors quality.

I think Ade will sign and he and Spurs know that. And if thats the case, City know that too. City probably happy to leave it late too, if they know rvp is in the bag. Just dragging it out. Even Mancini is like a blogger, showing impatience, when it's probably just a case of controlling the market. Having said that, Levy will not over-budget. City have known what we'll pay all along. Even negotiating last seasons loan. We got goals in Siggy, Vdv, Bale, and we're almost certain to buy another striker alongside Ade so we're not as desperate as some may think. Desperation was City a few years back, and how they're still paying for it. Still, rim is what you have to do to get today superstars to sign for a club that has spent recent times in the old 3rd... You share your name with United, lucky for you, for without that it'ld be even harder to attract players. I like Mancini though.

Nice work City. Show that greedy pr1ck who's boss. And shove it up Levy's hoop too, the sneaky cheap skate. What fish do you speak of jerkinmahjurgen? Not many that would a) go to Spurs in the first place, b) be affordable or c) get the wages they want? You Spurs boys think there's some sort of revolution going on at "the lane". All you've done is bought Siggurdson and Vertonghen and got rid of Pienaar and King.

His wages don't count towards Financial Fair Play because of the date he signed a contract on, so City can actually let him rot without worrying. I suspect the reason we really want him gone is his irreparable relationship with our target van Persie.
