* Not exactly a million, but maybe somewhere between 4 and 6.
So, let’s take a whizz around and see what’s going on…
News broke yesterday that Milan are interesting in signing Emmanuel Adebayor. And that’s great news. The Togan is not worth anything near £35m and if we were to get even half that, I’d be a happy man. The report / quote below was taken from the Daily Mail, which also reports that Ade is currently on £160,000 per week. Anyone think that is a little bit crazy and maybe a little untrue.
AC Milan are hatching a plan to lure Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor to Italy, according to reports.
Il Corriere Dello Sport claims Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti, who also has Gunners left back Gael Clichy on his radar, is devising a master plan to convince Arsene Wenger to part with the £35million-rated Adebayor.
But the striker signed a long-term contract with Arsenal last summer after fervent transfer speculation, which was reported to have doubled his wages to £80,000-a-week.
What would happen if Ade left us? Well, I think we would be richer and still have a target man who misses a lot in Bendtner. I think we’d play Eduardo, Vela and Walcott more, albeit not a fan of reducing our squad size, so if he did go, I’d suggest we promote Simpson or Sunu. Someone else who may be leaving in the Summer in Amaury “I’m crap” Bischoff… who’s agent, Pascal Granier has been in the press.
“We have clubs interested in Amaury, there are plenty of clubs in Europe interested in my players.
“I have links in France, Germany and even in England for my players.
“We just need to wait a bit and sit down with him [Bischoff] and we will decide his future.”
Oh well, what a big loss! What a disloyal agent too…
So down to the more interesting news and Gael Clichy is looking past Villarea-who? and Man Who-nited and looking straight to the final where he wants to meet Barcelona. Okay, well, I’m sure he’s not really looking past those two teams and knows that it’s going to be hard, but of course, that would be a dream final (especially out of Liverpool, Chelsea, Barcelona and Munich) and would be awesome to exact some kind of revenge.
So Villareal want revenge on us (for beating them a couple a years back)… United want revenge for their 2-1 defeat at the Emirates and we want revenge for Barcelona’s win in the CL final all those years ago…
Clichy had this to say:
“The final of the Champions League will be played against a top European team. But I think, and have a feeling, it will be Barcelona.
“They have so many great players. It will be good for revenge because they beat us last time. However, it is a task to go through by beating Villarreal and Manchester United.”
And the rest of the news sees Van Persie talk about how we’re better suited than Villa to clinch the CL positions… also how he wanted to move to Rangers in his early days and finally some guy called Moussa Dembele isn’t coming to us this summer… oh no!
So after 4 days of silence, there it is, a massive day of footballing stories for your pleasure…
All that leaves me to say is “Come On England…”
