City reject Adebayor Juve rumours

Adebayor was quoted by the Italian media as saying he was ready to

quit City after just one season due to the club’s pursuit of other

forwards, notably Inter Milan teenager Mario Balotelli. The former

Arsenal ace claimed that joining Juventus would be his preferred

choice after suggesting he would be disappointed to leave the

Premier League. “I wanted to wear the City shirt and have a better

season compared to last year,” Adebayor was quoted by Tuttosport.

“But I know there will not be many chances for me and so I am

considering the many offers I have received. “I will be sorry to

leave the Premier League, but in Europe there are other top

leagues. Juventus are a great club which I would like to play for.

“Until some time ago I would not have accepted a transfer to other

clubs. The economic aspect is important, but if it was one of the

biggest clubs in the world I would consider other aspects.”

However, there have been conflicting reports regarding the validity

of the quotes and City have been quick to stress they are not

looking to offload Adebayor. Using their Twitter feed, City said:

“Take it from us everyone, despite reports, MCFC has no plans to

sell Emmanuel Adebayor; our new No.9 for this season – and that’s

official.”
