Mathieu Flamini and Emmanuel Adebayor are set to reunite at Turkish club Caykur Rozespor with both of them reportedly being offered £1.7m a year in wages.
Adebayor left Arsenal for Manchester City back in 2009 after joining from Monaco in 2006. His time as a Gunner therefore lapped with Flamini’s first stint with us and they played two seasons together. Well, after eight years of waiting (and pining, I’m sure) they shall we reunited in Turkey.
Caykur Rozespor’s coach, Hikmet Karaman has apparently even confirmed it.
“We reached an agreement in principle with both players,” he reportedly said.
“They’ll come to Rize within a few days and the last step of negotiations are going to be done.
“This is down to everyone devotedly working to finish the deals, so I have to thank the board of directors and our president.”
Reports claim that both players will be receiving around £1.7m a year in wages, not much by modern football stands but considering they’re both over 30, it’s not too bad. Plus, it’s the highest wage anyone at the club is being paid.

Ade is currently at Crystal Palace so may be a little more complicated to sign than Flamini, since the midfielder is now out of contract and therefore free as a bird.
