Real Madrid reject Tottenham attempt to include Adebayor in Bale deal

Real Madrid have rejected an attempt by Tottenham Hotspur to include Emmanuel Adebayor in the deal that would take Gareth Bale to La Liga, the Daily Mail has reported, after Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti indicated he did not want the striker in his squad.

Adebayor previously played for Madrid on loan from Manchester City in 2011, the Togolese scoring eight goals in 22 games, but there is no appetite from Ancelotti to return the 29-year-old to the Spanish capital. But Adebayor appears not to have a place at White Hart Lane either following a year that saw him net only five times in the Premier League.

Spurs have this summer signed Roberto Soldado from Valencia for a club record fee and are keen to move on Adebayor, who, the newspaper claims, does not have a good relationship with Tottenham Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas. Daniel Levy, the Spurs chairman, offered Adebayor to Madrid during negotiations for the transfer of Bale, but the approach was swiftly rejected.

Adebayor originally moved to Spurs on loan in the summer of 2012, scoring 18 goals in 37 games. Extended negotiations between Tottenham and City then took place, with City eventually agreeing to sell the former Arsenal striker on a permanent deal, only for Adebayor’s form to tail off once he was confirmed as a Tottenham player.
