Sensitive Info Surrounding Adebayor's Transfer

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.

Fact

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.

Sensitive Material

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.

And finally...

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.

NO, NO, NO! Stricvtly not true. Daniel Levy is such a genius in the transfer market that we actually PAID Spurs £twelvty million pounds to take him off our hands, and we are paying him the £170k per week wages he demanded in full, on top of whatever pittance Spurs are paying him. I also have it on good authority that we have thrown in a Ferrari, a Ferrari boat, free lifetime passes to Euro-Disney and a half dozen virgins to seal the deal.

Abebayor demanding a LOYALTY bonus beggars belief..... His only loyalty was to himself..... An absolute cad and a bounder....but if we are not paying any o his salary that is good news......be gone Despicable One.

Ade said: "I am pleased to be signing for Spurs on a permanent basis after finally agreeing my departure with Manchester City.

“It may have taken longer than expected but I am delighted to be back at Tottenham Hotspur. I really enjoyed my time here last season and I am hoping we can achieve great things together again."

Majority of spurs fans are hating AVB already. Seeing Dawson being shipped out, and the signing of this lazy git with rubber feet (that is Adebayor) just means we are a sinking ship. AVB is destroying Spurs and makes me think that he is still on the books at Chelski, being paid to destroy us! :(

I would like to point out that a few years ago when Adebayor signed for City, in the middle of all the gloating and ribbing from City fans towards Arsenal fans, we quite politely told you all you'd live to regret signing Adebayor, and you all said we were bitter. Can I just say ....... we told you so.
