The Emmanuel Adebayor transfer saga could finally be about to end as Manchester City have reportedly ceded to the playerâ€™s outrageous demands. Adebayor had demanded a Â£5m sign-on fee as part of his proposed move to Tottenham and with Spurs not prepared to pay his Â£170k-a-week wages, City were asked to subsidise his wages for the next two years.
The People report that City have agreed to both of those stipulations thus giving Tottenham a chance to complete the Â£4m deal before the start of the new campaign. Spurs, City and Adebayorâ€™s agent have been locked in negotiations all summer long, with the former Arsenal manâ€™s personal terms proving to be the roadblock after the two clubs reached an agreement back in July.Roberto Mancini doesnâ€™t view the 28 year old as part of his plans at the Etihad and a failure to offload him this summer would have left the manager with an expensive unwanted substitute
Andre Villas-Boas is in dire need of striking reinforcements as he has only Jermain Defoe to work with. Adebayorâ€™s successful loan spell at the club last season made him the number one choice, especially with their other target, Brazilian Leonardo Damiao proving to be elusive.
