Emmanuel if your reading this, I hope you got your hopes up! No one at the Emirates wants you!
Marseille won the French title last season and are keen to keep the momentum going with a solid Champions League campaign. Coach Didier Deschamps is searching for quality recruits and French daily L’equipe reports that Manchester City striker Adebayor is high on his list of targets.
The Togo front man endured a troubled season last term, including the fatal attack on the Togo team at the African Nations Cup. Nonetheless, the 26-year-old still scored an impressive fourteen goals in 26 games for Manchester City .
However, City boss Roberto Mancini will come under pressure to send some players packing, given that he must announce a 25-man squad by September 1. There is enormous competition in attack with the likes of Carlos Tevez , Craig Bellamy, Robinho and Roque Santa Cruz already on the books before the possible arrival of Balotelli.
L’equipe reports that although Marseille are interested in taking Adebayor even on a loan deal, his 5.5 million euros per year wages could prove to be an obstacle. (IMScouting)
OK so the idea is this. Imagine Emmanuel is reading this now, maybe you could pass on your message to him in the comments. He left the club in a cloud of recriminations with money grabbing thoughts on his mind and it turns out he may well be loaned out as Roberto Mancini doesn’t appear to rate him, which is of course hilarious.
He tried to engineer a move to AC Milan the summer before he moved to Eastlands, it failed. He then walked around the pitch like a sullen stroppy teenager and Arsene then did the right thing by offloading him for a good price.
There is no doubt that he is not wanted at the Emirates and never will be.
