£25m Adebayor Undergoes Medical
Adebayor has undergone a medical at Manchester City, Arsenal have agreed a £25million transfer fee and the striker is expected to sign a contract giving him £170,000 a week.
The great news for Arsenal is that we have achieved a transfer fee for Adebayor of £25million, far in excess of what we could have hoped especially after his indifferent season. Once again Arsene Wenger has bought somebody from the French league and turned a huge profit. The money men at Arsenal must be doing cartwheels over the sale of Adebayor, not only has Wenger made a massive profit with which he will strengthen the squad, Adebayor was on £4 million wages a year.
Now Wenger will turn his attention offloading Phillipe Senderos for a fee in the region of £7million to Sunderland. This will give him in excess of £30 million to play with in this inflated transfer market.
There will be no tears shed around North London with the departure of our Togolese hit man. His attitude last season was a total disgrace. He may have put in what he considers “100%” performances, but the fans did not see it that way. In the big games he did not perform, he was missing against Manchester United and Chelsea in the two semi-finals. He scored an amazing goal against Villarreal, but he cannot live off the back of one goal. We saw in Bendtner the right attitude and work ethic that fans appreciate. The goals will follow for the Dane and that was one of the deciding factors is convincing Wenger to let Adebayor leave.
