QPR reportedly interested in Adebayor? It could end in total disaster

A Queens Park Rangers loan move for the Tottenham Hotspur striker would make no sense at all for the west London club.

According to Sky Sports, Harry Redknapp is planning to bring an old Tottenham favourite of his to QPR.

That favourite is Emmanuel Adebayor - but, really, what does it matter which one at this point? The fact that Redknapp can only seemingly turn to players he's managed in the past - for astronomical wages - is a bad enough sign for the R's.

Adebayor has struggled all season for Spurs and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly willing to take him off their hands on loan. Should PSG pay the striker's huge salary and give him game time, the move makes perfect sense for Tottenham.

But why should QPR come into this in any way?

The west London side need a goalscorer. Even at his best in recent years, Adebayor has not been a clinical goalscorer in any shape or form. He is a target man who, on form, could chip in with a handful of goals.

The problem, however, (as Tottenham fans will tell you) is he is not in form. Adebayor will need a good five games in a row starting for QPR before he can even begin to get used to finding his feet in front of goal.

And, financially, Redknapp looks once again to be in dream land. The Spurs man nets £100,000 a week, according to the Telegraph, and QPR would surely be expected to pay a portion of that should they land him on loan.

For even £30,000 a week, QPR could find more than one loanee of more value to their Premier League survival hopes than the 30-year-old would be.

PSG have stolen the headlines as far as the Adebayor interest is concerned, with QPR getting a fleeting mention. Let's hope, for the club's sake, that's how any potential deal pans out - with QPR having as little as possible to do with it.

Alternatively, as the London Evening Standard suggest, Adebayor simply stays at Tottenham...
