Agent hints at Adebayor staying with Arsenal

Emmanuel Adebayor is set to stay with Arsenal.

Stephane Courbis, the player's agent, is expected to meet Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager, this week, after the pair held talks in Vienna last Friday.

"Since the beginning, there has been a love story between Adebayor and Arsenal and his relationship with Wenger is based on trust and respect," Courbis said.

"Emmanuel is a man of heart, not of money. He is not greedy. He is a kid from the street, has sensibilities and is humble. If this was a money problem, then he would have asked to leave. I know that Arsenal's political position is that they don't pay high salaries."

Adebayor, who is in Togo for an event for his charitable foundation, wants his future resolved before the start of the season. "It is important for Emmanuel that Arsenal show their motivation to keep him," Courbis said. "Whatever they will decide, the decision will be taken with respect."
