After feverish speculation that Arsenal’s goalmeister Emmanuel Adebayor was ready to leap like a salmon into the arms of AC Milan, it turns out that all Mr Adebayor wanted in the first place was a decent contract at Arsenal.
Yep, looks like the spring-heeled star was just stringing us along, using the classic technique of drumming up interest from another club to scare his team into offering him a shiny new deal.The Sun reckons that the striker is ready to put pen to paper on a £80,000-a-week deal to stay at the Emirates. Adebayor himself said:
“My future with Arsenal has never been in doubt and I want to assure fans I will be here for many years.
“My agent has met with coach Arsene Wenger about a new deal and I am happy about how the talks are going so fans can rest assured.” (The Sun)
Arsenal fans, happy that he’s staying? Sad? Ambivalent?
