Welcome to bat country: Adebayor 'craves' Chelsea move, according to not Hunter S. Thompson

The fear and the loathing...

I'm borrowing Cartilage Free Captain's homage to the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas catchphrase that they use to describe insane transfer rumors because this one concerns one of their own.  Though as far as I can tell, most of them would like that to not be the case as soon as possible.  He's their Winston Bogarde / Florent Malouda!

On the bad days at Spurs, when [Adebayor] is in a particularly confrontational mood, he tells people that he is only prepared to leave Tottenham if they can fix a move to Real Madrid or Chelsea.

He played for Real once before, a short-term solution for Jose Mourinho during his spell at the Bernabeu, and he has always craved the chance to play for Chelsea.

That's Neil Ashton for ya, for once penning a hit piece on somebody other than Chelsea.  Evil money-grubbing Adebayor, how dare he collect what's due to him as per the terms of his contract.*  See, I told you he's their Bogarde/Malouda!

* paid by no less than TWO teams; that's some quality agenting right there

Of course, it's only been a week since Adebayor himself has declared he's happy at Spurs and wants to fight for his place.  Hmmm ... who do we believe more, Adebayor and his obvious tweets or Ashton and his fly on the wall?

This is not the first time I've seen this silly Adebayor-Mourinho reunion nonsense, and it doesn't look any more believable now than it did then.

Next!
