Levy was trying to get rid of the striker but Madrid are not interested.
As the continued saga of Gareth Bale’s proposed transfer to Real Madrid rumbles on, it has taken a surprise twist as Tottenham Hotspur try and offer Emmanuel Adebayor in the deal, according to the Daily Mail.
Spurs are keen to offload the striker just 12 months after signing the 29-year-old on a permanent deal from Manchester City, but Madrid are not interested in the new plan.
Adebayor spent half a year with Los Blancos in 2010/11 – again on-loan from City and a season before making a similar switch to White Hart Lane.
The Togo international netted eight goals in 22 matches in all competitions for the Spanish giants, but at the time Madrid were under the management of Jose Mourinho and now Carlo Ancelotti is at the helm, the Italian is not interested in Adebayor.
It was a bold move from Daniel Levy and one that the Spurs chairman has lost nothing by proposing, as the north London club still hold all the cards in the Bale affair due to the Welshman’s long contract.
Whilst the future of the winger will be a concern for Levy, the chairman will now also have to look into other ways of getting rid of Adebayor.
It has been a gradual decline for the African with Tottenham, after impressing in 2011/12 whilst on-loan from the eventual Premier League champions, before reverting back to a perceived lazy attitude once the move was made permanent.
Adebayor is currently in France on compassionate leave following the death of the forward’s brother.
