Perennial flops Tottenham Hotspurs are set to smash their wage cap in order to make incredible sulk Emmanuel Adebayor their highest paid player.
The North London-based under-achievers were impressed by Adebayor during his season long loan at that hole in the ground they call Whitehart Lane and are willing to offer 6million to make the deal permanent.
Adebayor is out of favour with his current employers Man City who are looking to clear the decks before adding Robin Van Persie to their collection of former Gunners. The miserable one is likely to be joined in the Man City striker exodus by Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez and Roque Santa Cruz.
Spurs are looking at giving the Togolese striker a four million pound signing on fee and a princely 115k a week in wages. No doubt as soon as he signs his bumper new contract Adebayor will pull his usual stunt of cutting back his efforts by 50-60% and then complaining about the calibre of players around him.
