Adebayor’s United feeler
Emmanuel Adebayor’s £25million move to Manchester City took a dramatic twist yesterday when his advisers offered the Arsenal striker to Manchester United. It followed a breakdown in talks over Adebayor’s personal terms, with City reluctant to meet his demands for £170,000 a week. But United rejected the chance and City are still expected to sign the Togo centre forward whose work permit was renewed yesterday.

However, the quote comes from a pre-tour interview conducted for ManUtd.com in June. NB player activity could also include loans, departures or contracts.
