Throughout the week we’ve touched on the subject of Emmanuel Adebayor – firstly amidst reports of a move to Monaco at the end of the season and then we asked whether he had a future at Spurs after his best performance of the campaign in midweek.
Tottenham’s wage structure was broken by Ade who is believed to be on around £100k a week at the club and one of the plus points was to get the striker off the bill. However, with Gareth Bale set to be offered an even better deal, could the club be about to splash out even further with a summer bid for Barcelona’s David Villa?
Reports claim that Barca are ready to sell the 31 year old after he returned from a lengthy injury lay off to watch much of the season from the subs bench. Clearly he has more to offer and if he seeks a move away from the club then his current side will be looking for around £13m for his signature.
Once again, Spurs have been linked as one of those clubs ready to make a move but is it one that’s really likely, or will Adebayor still be in residence in 2013-14?
