Sensitive Info Surrounding Adebayor's Transfer
We at Vital Manchester City have received sensitive material surrounding Emmanuel Adebayor's transfer to Tottenham Hotspur.
I will begin by saying our source will remain anonymous and that the following information cannot be verified. Some of the material we received has been omitted for legal reasons.
Yesterday, Tuesday 21 August 2012 the official Manchester City website announced that Spurs had signed the Togolese forward following last seasons successful loan agreement between both clubs. No fee was disclosed to the media.
We at VMC understand that 12 months ago City requested Tottenham pay £15m for the transfer to go through, however both sides failed to agree. In the end Spurs took Ade on loan for a fee of £5m with the agreement that this figure would come off any subsequent transfer.
Several days ago MCFC and Spurs agreed a fee of £6m with Spurs to pay Adebayor a signing on fee (compensation in loss of wages for two years), however the hold up was that the striker wanted a loyalty bonus payment from City of £2m - The club were not prepared to pay meaning he received no additional payment.
There was no love lost between Manchester City FC and Emmanuel Adebayor, simples. It also appears the club were pleased to finally get the 28-year-old off their payroll and see the back of him. He was a thorn in Arsenal's side, he was a pain in our side, now its a matter of time before he becomes a pain in someone else's side, yup, over to you Tottenham.
