Harry Redknapp would be interested in signing Didier Drogba but wages may be a problem.
The Chelsea striker is available on a free transfer this summer and his recent performances including his volley against Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final have reminded onlookers that the 34-year-old still has more to give.
Spurs fans may be thinking that this is all irrelevant speculation when we don’t even know if Harry Redknapp will even remain at White Hart Lane past the end of this season. The Spurs boss is expected to take over the regins with England.
Harry is always keen to get a bargain deal – but could this mean that Adebayor will not be returning to the Lane next season?
Redknapp said: “He is a free but I was just reading in the paper about him going to China.
“It seems the money in China at the moment is incredible. Players can go there and make a fortune.
“He would be a great player for Chelsea to keep or for somebody else to take. Anyone would be interested but you would have to be able to afford his wages. That is going to be the key. If he is on a free you are going to have to pay him a fortune.
“But he is a powerhouse when he is on his game. He is strong and almost unplayable when he is really at it.
“It was an amazing goal he scored against us. He smashed it from an angle.
“His strength in holding (Spurs defender William) Gallas off and then hitting the ball from where he did, there aren’t too many players who could have done that.”
