Manchester City’s Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor could be moving to Juventus if reports doing the round are anything to go by. Adebayor has struggled for playing time only making 2 Premier League starts this season.
According to Ade, terms with the Italian giants have been agreed. Adebayor has fallen down the pecking order at Eastlands ever since the arrival of Mario Balotelli and David Silva in the summer.
This coupled with the improved form of striker Carlos Tevez and preference of Brazillian Jo by Mancini means that the striker is no longer guaranteed a starting position.
David Platt one of City’s coaches added to the speculation by refusing to comment on Ade’s situation when questioned by reportes.
“Everybody recognises that if you are not in the team you may want to move on,” Platt told Sky Sports. “If it is right for Manu and right for the football club and more importantly from a business point of view, then something may happen in January.”
Speaking to Sport/Foot Magazine a clearly dumbfounded Adebayor was lost for words as he tried to explain the deterioration of his relationship with coach Roberto Mancini.
“I don’t know what I did wrong to Roberto Mancini, but he never makes me play.
“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.”
It remains to be seen whether Ade’s move will materialise, however, considering the extent of the situatution at Eastlands a move away from the EPL in January cannot be ruled out.
