It was thought a few weeks ago that the Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor would finally complete a permanent move away from the Etihad stadium after it was revealed that the club had agreed a £ 6 million fee with Tottenham. The Togo striker spent the last season on loan at Tottenham and scored 18 goals in all competitions for the Londoners. It helped them finish in the fourth position in the league, although it was not helpful in getting them Champions League football. Emmanuel Adebayor was signed by the Manchester club for £ 25 million from Arsenal a few years ago. However, he has fellow to favour with the manager Roberto Mancini.
One of the main problems in selling Emmanuel Adebayor has been his extravagant wages. He is reportedly on a contract worth around £ 175,000 per week and he is not ready to take a pay cut in order to join the team where he will get regular football. It was told that Tottenham have agreed a deal to bring the striker to White Hart Lane, but it is now emerged that Emmanuel Adebayor is not ready to take the pay cut in order to join Tottenham. He wants Manchester City to compensate for the loss in the form of a one time payment.
Emmanuel Adebayor still has two years left on his current contract with the Manchester club. Despite all the riches, Manchester City are not willing to have Adebayor on the board due to the fact that it will cause a lot of problems in their efforts to sign Robin van Persie. Only if they sell Adebayor will they be able to afford the wages of van Persie without affecting the financial fair play regulations. This is due to the significant losses City have made in the last three seasons.
