Much Adu about size of pay packet?..

So then, American teenager Freddie Adu, 'rated as one of the best talents on the planet' (so the story goes) has announced that he's in talks with two big clubs and Chelsea. "I am still talking to Chelsea and Manchester United, as well as Real Madrid," Adu is quoted in the Daily Star. "I am looking forward to getting my opportunity with the team that offers me the best deal". "Hopefully it will happen next year."

This is only my opinion, but I think someone should tell Adu that he's sounding like a football mercenary at the tender age of 17. It's bad enough when one of these so called stars performs the 'badge kissing act' for his new club, then does it again when he moves on to the next club a season or so later, but to announce to the world that you will move to the club who offers you the biggest pay day is no news at all. Some things are best left unsaid, this is one of them. Freddie, we didnt need to know this.

Next Freddie will be telling us 'it was always my dream to play for x'.


  1. I don't think there's much of a story here. Most of these comments sound recycled from over the past two years. Adu's a promising player, but clearly not ready to start for any top table team in England or Spain. Midtable? Maybe.

  2. I don't think he could start for any Prem team. He is a decent player at the MLS level and will only get better but any club that buys him will be doing so for his future potential and not his current talent.
