Emmanuel Adebayor claims that Juventus have agreed a deal to take him from Manchester City when the transfer window opens.

He told Sport/Foot Magazine: “I don’t know what I did wrong to Roberto Mancini, but he never makes me play.

“I’m going to change air during the transfer window in January.

“And I can tell you that City has already reached an agreement with Juventus for a loan.

“I therefore expect to be able to leave in December.”

Adebayor has often been linked with a move to Italian outfit Juve, where he would link up with manager Luigi Del Neri.

However, one potential snag to the deal could be the fact that the Old Lady already have one non-EU player in their squad in the form of Serbian Milos Krasic.

Serie A quota rules prevent Italian clubs having more than one player from outside the EU, thus leaving former Togo international Adebayor unable to link up with the 27-time champions. (Sky Sports)

Presuming these quotes from Sky Sports are accurate, this is rather curious logic from Emmanuel Adebayor.

A deal is apparently already in place even though Juventus would not be able to play him.

It’s not as if Milos Krasic is even surplus to requirements in Turin. The Serbia international winger has scored five goals in his first 13 appearances for Juventus after signing in the summer, and has been one of the brightest sparks of their season.

Regardless, by speaking out against the manager, former Arsenal striker Adebayor’s days at Eastlands are surely numbered.
