Guardian: Adebayor in Manchester

This could easily slip under the radar with all the Tévez stuff but according to guardian.co.uk we are very close to signing our third forward of the summer: Arsenal's Emmanuel Adebayor:

Manchester City are on the verge of completing a deal to sign Emmanuel Adebayor from Arsenal, the Guardian understands. The two clubs have agreed a fee, believed to be closer to Arsenal's asking price of £25m than City's original offer of £20m, and the striker is in Manchester discussing terms on a five-year contract worth between £150,000-170,000 a week.

This could well be done in the very near future, even in time for the Vodacom Challenge.

ridiculous! im an arsenal fan and i know full well that beckham would never join city. not in a million years. he is referring to chelsea when he says he would consider another club in prem. Ancelloti-milan link?

Tom, of course he would join City. One of the world's most assiduous narcissists would leap at the chance to play for a club that's all over the news at the moment. And he'd get well paid and he'd play every week and he'd live back in Cheshire.

The trouble is that City's strategy is based on exposure, branding, globalising and all that other wank, and Beckham can help that as well as anyone. Oh, I hope it's just speculation.
