Man United to make shock signing of former Arsenal and Man City ace?

Manchester United are understood to have been provided with the chance to sign Tottenham Hotspur forward Emmanuel Adebayor today, according to reports in The Daily Mail.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City striker has found regular first team chances increasingly tough to come by at White Hart Lane in recent seasons, which in turn has led to him becoming disillusioned with his stay at the club. And as a result of that, Spurs are now believed to have offered the Red Devils a chance to sign the player.

United are themselves in a kind of striker crisis, having parted ways with a horde of attackers this summer. And Adebayor, on account of the immense big stage experience that he possesses, may well prove to be a useful and economical signing for the side.

However, the Togolese star has been very inconsistent in his performances in recent seasons, with him also being far from prolific in the attacking third, which in turn raises questions on his ability to be the perfect answer to the Red Devils’ needs.

Meanwhile, reports in the press are also linking Adebayor with a potential move to West Ham United; although any potential move to Upton Park may result in him having to take a massive wage cut.
