Real Madrid have rejected the chance to resign striker Emmanuel Adebayor as part of any potential Gareth Bale deal, reports the Daily Mail.
Having failed to replicate the success of his initial loan spell at the club during the 2011/12 season this past year, Tottenham are ready to part ways with Adebayor this summer should the right offer come in, but with no one biting due to excessive wage demands, Spurs are doing all they can to offload the former Arsenal man.
According to reports, Daniel Levy has offered Adebayor in any deal which see’s Gareth Bale join Real Madrid this summer, as an extra to get him off the wage bill. Madrid have rejected the chance to bring Adebayor back to the Bernabeu, with the 29-year old spending a loan spell at the Spanish club in 2011, prior to him joining Tottenham.
The relationship between Adebayor and manager Andre Villas-Boas has deteriorated to the extent that the club are willing to let him quit the club this summer as they search for new striking options. Having turned their noses up at Adebayor, manager Carlo Ancelotti is keen to offload one of his players in a part-exchange for Bale, with the Mirror reporting Spurs want young talents Jese Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata.
Spurs have already brought in one striker this summer, Valencia’s Roberto Soldado, but are willing to part with Adebayor and Defoe to make way for some more additions. They are considering offering a contract to former West Ham forward Carlton Cole. The England international has been training with the club, impressing Villas-Boas in a friendly game played behind closed doors yesterday.
