Adebayor nears Tottenham switch as Man City yield to the player's demands

The Emmanuel Adebayor transfer saga could finally be about to end as Manchester City have reportedly ceded to the player’s outrageous demands. Adebayor had demanded a £5m sign-on fee as part of his proposed move to Tottenham and with Spurs not prepared to pay his £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 £4m deal before the start of the new campaign. Spurs, City and Adebayor’s agent have been locked in negotiations all summer long, with the former Arsenal man’s personal terms proving to be the roadblock after the two clubs reached an agreement back in July.

Roberto Mancini doesn’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. Adebayor’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.
