Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor, he of the Samson-esque form and the ability to leap like a salmon for the ball, has turned his nose up at a move to the Camp Nou. 24-year-old Adebayor said:
“As a footballer you want to make history and leave your name at a club.
“I hope I can do that here as I love Arsenal. Hopefully I can make some more history.
“I’m at the right team at the right time, playing good football and scoring goals so I’m happy.
“The most important thing is playing for the fans and having the opportunity to play with so many great players.” (The Sun)
So no sign of a Barca snub there – looks like we’ll have to take The Sun’s word for it – which is a bit like trusting Sven Goran Eriksson with your girlfriend – having said that would Adebayor even get in the Barcelona team? Which of Eto’o, Bojan, Henry, and Ronaldinho would he replace?
