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.
