Hill-Wood: Adebayor Going Nowhere

Hill-Wood: Adebayor Going Nowhere

Despite the News Of The World printing alleged quotes from Arsene Wenger claiming we're a selling club, Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood says the Gunners have no intention of selling Adebayor.

Much has been made of the ongoing Ade saga, but it appears Wenger is only ready to sell the striker if a really BIG offer comes in.

PHW though, says he's going nowhere.'We want him (Adebayor) to stay,'

'Adebayor still has a long time left on his contract and we have absolutely no intention of releasing him from that contract.'

He did however, concede he expects Alex Hleb to leave the Grove in the summer.

'Hleb has made it clear he wants to go, I think maybe he will go.'

Hardly a surprise now is it?

There seems to be a bit of a transfer logjam at the moment. All centred around Barcelona. They need to be sure they can offload players before bringing more in. As Laporta has narrowly survived his vote of confidence maybe that logjam will start to break now. Once one goes down then others will fall into place.

So its apparent now that the high asking price for Ade is to prevent him from leaving, which is good, despite his dire comments to NOTW.

This is just speculation, but I actually thinks Wenger has slapped a massive transfer fee on Adebayor half thinking it will ward off potential buyers, but if someone is stupid enough to pay that sum then he's laughing all the way to the bank.

If I were in a position to choose 3 players to leave in transfers this close season, then Flamini would still be here and Eboue, Hleb and Adebayor would be gone. Let's hope that some club will be stupid enough to pay the asking price for Adebayor (our one season wonder). Even if he were to have more good seasons, a £35m. transfer fee is too good to refuse.

If they dont wnat to stay at arsenal, we should let them go, it wont help for team spirit at the start of the season and we dont need to players stroping about flirting with other clubs, id rather have two players who want to play for arsenal than two who want to leave!

Maybe the incident with Bendtner at WHL was an indication to Ade's personality(thinking hes better than everyone else).

I have to point out this article because I'm not sure I've ever read one that I agree with so completely http://www.football365.com/john_nicholson/0,17033,8746_3788645,00.html

I am sure I have read things I agree with as much or more but I really can't recall one just now. That's a great piece - and sound advice. I stopped buying newspapers sometime back but the 'news' is always in front of you.
