The future of Emmanuel Adebayor has been in the air for quite some time now. AC Milan and Barcelona were thought to be battling it out for the Togolese striker but now it seems that the lanky forward could stay at Arsenal.
In an interview published by the AC Milan site – and translated by The Telegraph – the club’s president, Adriano Galliani, stated the he is unsure whether his side can convince Arsenal to sell their player.
“Adebayor has a contract and I am a pessimist by nature. Look at last year when Real Madrid said Kaka was theirs. If the club do not allow you in, there is nothing you can do.” He said.
But while AC Milan might have conceded defeat on the matter, Barcelona is still in the hunt. The Sun reported last week that the Catalan club is close to agreeing a transfer fee for the player, but that a potential transfer would depend on the sale of Samuel Eto’o.
