The Sun: Adebayor's going to Milan for £15m

Even though I do not terribly trust The Sun, I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt on this one.

According to the paper's site, Adebayor is going to be offered a sizzling amount of cash in pounds by the Italian giants:

"AC MILAN will make a bid of £15million for Emmanuel Adebayor this week.

The Serie A club are desperate to give their fans some positive news after Carlo Ancelotti's departure for Chelsea and Kaka's impending exit from the San Siro.

Milan offered £25m for the Arsenal striker last summer but the bid was turned down.

Their valuation has decreased after a mediocre season from the Togo international.

Adebayor netted 16 times last term - which was a huge disappointment after his 30-goal return the season before.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is willing to sell the 25-year-old as he attempts to rebuild a side which struggled to finish fourth in the Premier League last term.

Milan were interested in Didier Drogba but, as SunSport revealed two months ago, the striker is to be offered a new deal by Chelsea.

Drogba, 31, is likely to agree a three-year contract next month."

I leave it to you to do the believing.
