There is more chance of Spurs finishing in the top four next season, than Arsenal agreeing to quadruple this player’s salary.
Like millions of other people, we should really believe everything we read in The Sun, but they’ve been known to get it wrong nearly all the time, that’s the problem. Therefore, when they claim in an ‘exclusive’ that Emmanuel Adebayor is demanding £120k a week to stay at Arsenal, you can’t help but feel that a) it’s an exclusive because it’s a fictional claim and b) even if there’s any truth in it, the club are not going to smash their wage structure for Mr Greedy Guts.
Apparently, Milan and Barcelona are prepared to pay him this ridiculous sum of cash and, while the Gunners might hike up his current £30k-a-week deal (it’s a wonder that the striker can afford to eat at the moment), it will be a modest increase for a player who is by no means the real deal.
Should Arsenal let him go and focus on bringing in players who want to play for the club? Surely they shouldn’t be held to ransom by a striker who is possibly the third-best at the club anyway?
