Harry Redknapp has expressed his desire to bring Adebayor to White Hart Lane
While I for one like Harry is a great manager and a chancer of epic proportions, to try and pull a striker on wages like Adebayor and get his parent club to foot the bill, Got to admire the brass balls on that.
While they would like Adebayor, Tottenham would also like City to pay his wages or a very large part of it reportably form various media sources. How true it is ?
What is certain is Harry’s intent towards the player.
Harry who is in South Africa spoke to the media and had this to say on Adebayor.
“He is a name that was mentioned and I spoke to the chairman about the player, about the possibility of loaning him, but whether they [City] would loan him I don’t know,” Redknapp told reporters in South Africa. “If they would loan him he would be of interest. He is a quality player. We will wait and see.”
The fact Abebayor is a good player when he wants to turn it on, he can put goals away. He would easily fit into the set up and be a good loan signing for them, If its a loan and they don’t have to pay the bulk of the wages, Why not ? Even better.
I and Spurs fans alike would love to see Ade in the Tottenham Hotspur shirt.
Just think of the North London derby the Arsenal fans would go nuts, the fact he is a hate figure even to the most passive Arsenal fan, to be in a Spurs jersey to boot.
Why the headline says “having a laugh” is simple, Spurs are a serious side who have just as much chance as anyone to clinch the title with the squad they have at present. For Spurs to sign Ade even on loan would strengthen their squad further. If the reports are true about the wages they are having a laugh its a cheeky Harry Redknapp chancing his arm. For City to pay Adebayor’s massive wages while he bangs it the goals to help Spurs week in and week out to get ahead of City would be crazy. I don’t know the figure that Ade is on but must be up in the £120,000 a week bracket.
Adebayor has played his last game in a City shirt that’s for sure time and again be bemoans the club and his situation. The player clearly wants a move to Real Madrid as do most players, However Real don’t seem to running in to sign him which could say, Your not as good as you think you are ! (Nicklas Bendtner sprang to mind when I typed that also)
Watching Adebayor at times is great and he does have his moments, Just don’t ask him to track back or learn the offside rule and there wont be a problem.
Chances of him going to Tottenham ? Who knows ? would have to say slim with City and Spurs being close rivals in the past two seasons cant be good sense to help them improve.
Then again some Arsenal and City fans will tell you that Ade at your club would be a great way to sabotage a team.
