Emmanuel Adebayor's future with Tottenham has been left undecided after chairman Daniel Levy issued concerns that turning 30 has threatened the chances of making a profit from selling the striker.
Despite Monaco showing an interest in the forward as a result of his performances in the second half of last season, he has expressed a desire to stay at White Hart Lane. According to Standard Sport Adebayor does not want to move from London as he is settled with his family.
This decision will cost Adebayor a drop in his wages as any previous commitment from Manchester City, who made a contribution of £170,000 to his wages in the first two years of his contract, no longer exists.
Levy has expressed a strong view that he wants the average age of the club to decrease so that in the future selling of players will be much easier due to them still being profitable. Adebayor turned 30 four months ago which means that he does not look likely to return to the club as time is running out to make a profit from him.
The concern that Levy has stems from when ex-manager Harry Redknapp was sacked two years ago and a requirement for a younger team has become a necessity.
New manager Mauricio Pochettino is expected to put forward his transfer plans but no doubt chairman Levy will take charge of the proceedings, and could push Adebayor out of the club regardless of what the former Arsenal man wants.
