Emmanuel Adebayor’s agent, Stephane Courbis, has a remarkable knack for missing irony entirely. First he claims that his client’s unsettled nature isn’t due to money, despite the player’s clear demands for a wage increase, and now this:
“At the moment, nothing’s decided. Neither in one direction, or another. We don’t communicate for the moment because too many things have been written.”
There is only reason why ‘too many things have been written’ and that is that ‘too much has been said’. And it is both Courbis and Adebayor that have been doing most of the talking.
The big man has spectacularly managed to turn a faithful support away from him in the past couple of weeks, and with Wenger playing hardball with Barcelona and Milan, it seems that one (probably the Spanish) might pay the asking price of around 25-30m, which is great business in anyone’s language.
Nasri really is coming, he’ll just another ten days. Snore.
And the summer rolls on…
