Arsenal striker rocks Wenger
Monday, 30 June 2008

EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR dropped a bombshell by signalling his exit from Arsenal.

The Togo striker has been strongly linked with a move to Italian side AC Milan or Spanish giants Barcelona.

And he reckons everyone would be satisfied if the Gunners were to make millions on his transfer.

Adebayor, 24, said: “If they’re going to get 50 million for me and they bought me for 10 million, everyone is getting the benefits.

"They have to make a good decision and I have to make a good decision.”

Adebayor, who is demanding a new £120,000- a-week contract to stay, added: “I have asked Arsenal to look at it and see what they want.

“I have a promise from the manager Arsene Wenger that they will call me next week. I am waiting for their answer and next week I will decide.

"I need to know before I come back to train on July 21. At the moment, I am in a position that I don’t know where I will play.”

Former Gunners vice-chairman David Dein fears the exit of Arsenal’s best players will gather pace without more investment into the club.

Dein supports Arsenal’s biggest shareholder — Alisher Usmanov. The Russian billionaire would make up to £100m a year available for the team if he took over. And Dein said: “It needs somebody wealthy in the short term.

“I can see the way the game is going. The wealthier are going to get wealthier and more successful. It is getting polarised.

“Arsenal have Wenger. But you have to give the man a chance. I don’t want to see Arsenal as the second team in London.”
