Adebayor talks up Milan move in quickfire u-turn

Emmanuel Adebayor is ready to forget his promise to stay at Arsenal next season and push for a big-money move to AC Milan.

At a press conference the Togo striker, who scored 30 times for the Gunners last season, pledged his future to the Premier League club, insisting: 'I have three more years (on my) contract so no matter what I have to stay. I'm staying at Arsenal.'

But just minutes afterwards, in a briefing with the written press in Vienna, Adebayor once again hinted strongly that he would demand a transfer to the San Siro in showdown talks with manager Arsene Wenger next week.

'I had a dream of playing for Arsenal, and Arsenal are one of the loveliest clubs in the world,' he said.

'When I go back to Africa it is obvious that a lot of people love the club. But now I have a chance of playing with one of the biggest clubs in the world.'

Adebayor added: 'I haven't had a chance to speak to the manager yet. But we will sit down next week and decide what is good for my career.

'We will have to meet with the manager before anything can be decided. But, as you know better than anyone, a lot of teams want me to play for them.

'It will not be a difficult decision. I'm just going to sit down with my agent and with my family and decide what is good for my career.'

Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf believes Adebayor has already made up his mind.

He told Setanta Sports: 'When I spoke with him I said 'I'm waiting for you'. Let's see what will happen.

'He already said he would come, but it depends now on Arsenal.

'If he leaves Arsenal, it's a done deal. He comes to Milan.'

Whatever the outcome, Adebayor insists money would never be a motivating factor if he were to move clubs.

Arsenal would stand to make a substantial profit if they were to sell the striker, and Adebayor himself would also expect to see his wages increase.

However, the former Monaco striker said: 'When I was young I had a dream to be a good footballer and play for a big team.

'I was born in Togo so I never cared about playing for money, my happiness was to play to enjoy myself. That's what I've been doing until now.

'You can see people changing clubs because of money, because they want a change of atmosphere or to get their names in the big leagues. I just play football to enjoy myself. I play because I love it.'
