L’Equipe are reporting that Emmanuel Adebayor is wanted by Tottenham, Zenit Saint Petersburg, Paris Saint-Germain, Fenerbahce and Olympique Marseille. Though, the player may not have a lack of potential suitors, it is believed that none of the clubs are willing to give in to the Manchester City forward’s high wage demands.
The former Togo international spent the remainder of last season out on loan at Real Madrid but after contributing very little, besides an impressive brace against Tottenham in a Champions League tie, the Spanish giants are not interested in retaining his services. And neither are parent club, Manchester City.
This turn of events means that the Former Arsenal man must find himself a new club this summer.
The only club in the English Premier League expressing a real interest in the striker are Tottenham as Redknapp seeks new firepower up front. A move to the North London club would be an option that is unlikely to please many of his old Arsenal fans but Adebayor will not care as it would be a good move for him, given the options available.
It seems as though the Spurs boss does not want to fork out such ridiculous wages however, especially for a player that has failed to find any great goal scoring form over the past couple seasons.
Olympique Marseille are now showing a great deal of interest in the forward as their sporting director has confirmed they want to make the transfer happen but has admitted that they may not have the funds to cope with his wages.
It seems the Manchester City forward has a lot of thinking to do this summer and needs to decide whether sitting on the bench at Eastlands, earning a load of cash is more important to him than playing football week in, week out for a club who appreciates his talents, with the slight drawback of a pay cut.
