Adebayor talks up Juventus loan deal

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor has claimed that he will join Serie A giants Juventus on loan in January.

The 26-year-old has struggled to hold down a first-team place at City since joining from Arsenal in 2008 and his relationship with Roberto Mancini seems beyond repair.

‘I don't know what I did wrong to Roberto Mancini, but he never makes me play,’ Adebayor told Sport/Foot Magazine.

The Togo international continued: ‘I'm going to change air during the transfer window in January. And I can tell you that City has already reached an agreement with Juventus for a loan. I therefore expect to be able to leave in December.’

Although City have denied Adebayor’s claim that he will move to Turin in January, the club may look to offload the £25m signing who has made just 12 appearances this season.
