Emmanuel Adebayor has hinted that he will leave Manchester City this summer and has made it clear that Juventus are his preferred destination.
With City ready to spend £30 million to sign Mario Balotelli from Inter, Adebayor has revealed that he will be leaving the club this summer.
“I am sorry to leave the Premier League, but in Europe there are other top leagues,” he told Tuttosport. “Juventus are a great club in which I would like to play.
“Until some time ago I would not have accepted a transfer to other clubs. I wanted to wear the City shirt and have a better season compared to last year, but I know there will not be many chances for me and so I am considering the many offers I have received.”
The quotes come after reports in the Daily Mirror on Wednesday that Adebayor was intending to fight for his place in the side.
“I’m hoping to be available all this season and see what I can achieve for this club,” he said. “We have some amazing players: Yaya, Carlos Tevez, Patrick Vieira and Kolo Toure. We all came here to make our own history.
“It’s a dream for any player to come to a club and become a legend during your time there and, of course, that’s what we are all striving to achieve. We want to leave a legacy at City.”
