Emmanuel Adebayor Ready To Force Tottenham Move

No doubt thanks to this infernal snow, transfer gossip is a little thin on the ground this morning – so hearty thanks must go out to the Daily Mirror and their bumper seven-pronged doozy of a rumour.

After 17 months of unswerving loyalty, the Mirror are claiming that nigh-on-unlovable Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor is ready to ‘dig in his heels’ and force a January loan move to Tottenham.

Adebayor is reportedly confident that, as well as convincing City to let him move to one of their closest rivals, he can also persuade his current employers to continue paying half of his £120,000-a-week wages – so as to fit into Spurs’ strict wage structure.

With Arsenal fans twice-jilted and the Spurs faithful pathologically averse to ex-Gunners, can you just imagine the bloody blue hell that would emanate from both sides of the North London divide should ‘Manu’ pitch up at White Hart Lane? Please, please, please Allah let this happen!

As for those other six prongs I promised you?

Well, the Mirror have also taken it upon themselves to find suitors for some of City’s less prominent dead wood, by claiming that Shaun Wright-Phillips is almost definitely off to Aston Villa in January, forgotten striker Roque Santa Cruz will have to pick between Blackburn, Lazio or Espanyol, Shay Given will be the subject of a bidding war between Manchester United and Fulham, Pablo Zabaleta will be allowed to join AC Milan and wastrels Jo and Michael Johnson will just be released back into the wild without fanfare.

    Adebayor isn’t the type of player i could see Harry being interested in, and i doubt very much that Levy would pay his over inflated wages…. no thanks Ade, you just stay put please!

  3. jak says:

    He wont be going to Spurs, even if we have to run his contract out. Also Citeh wont be paying any of his wages out on loan. So take the cash Ade and try and force a way back into the team by scoring goals.

    Is it April Fools day?
    I guess it really is Thin News day
    But then the haloed bastion of journalistic integrity otherwise known as the Daily Mirror have never needed a thin news day to start making up stories.

    So City will loan a top striker (with a dodgy attitude) to their closest rivals and pay half his wages so that he can score lots of goals and propel the Spuds up the league….ummmm….ha ha ha

    Just ask Bellamy and Given whether this story could be true!

    you man city muppets he wants to leave because he wants to play real football with a team that gives entertainment by a team not motivated by money and greed c.o.y.s

  6. mr spurs says:

    oh just as a footnote we dont want him here anyway lol

  7. S-League Player says:

    I think he’ll have more value to Spurs just staying at City and poisoning the dressing room. Hmmm..

  8. chimpo says:

  10. […] were strong rumours that Adebayor, unhappy with his peripheral lot at Eastlands, was keen on forcing a move to North London with Spurs said to be exploring the possibility of taking the striker on loan in […]
