Football can be a cruel game at times. Superstars that were deemed irreplaceable by their clubs can turn into dead wood and are invariably tossed aside. Recently, all the Premier League clubs released a list of players they had retained as well as the players whom they had let go off. While they might not meet the standards of their respective clubs, we believe a number of the players on the “Released List” could have a future at other clubs.

Emmanuel Adebayor

Adebayor’s journeyman career has taken him to big clubs such as Real Madrid.

The Togolese striker has developed a reputation as a journeyman. After starting his career at Metz, he has gone on to represent Monaco, Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace. Recently released, he can prove to be a good asset for several clubs who are devoid of quality up front with his link-up play as well as an ability to find the back of the net.

While the last two seasons might not have gone as per plan for Adebayor, he can certainly pack a punch with extended playing time. At 32 years of age, he has at least 2 years of top flight football in him. However, he will have to take a huge pay cut in order to ensure playing time as his current wages are believed to be in excess of £ 5million.
