Super-agent Vicente Morabito, who is a big-deal fixer but not Adebayor's representative, says a move to Milan is 80 per cent done.
"The person who is going to decide is myself.
"If he says it is 100 per cent certain that I am going there and I say 'no' the answer is 'no'.
"If you told me seven years ago when I was playing in Togo that I would have a choice of playing in Spain or Italy it would seem crazy.
"But for me the most important thing is to play on a football pitch, any football pitch.
"I have never played for Milan or Barcelona so I don't know anything about the atmosphere around these clubs.
"If you want to know what playing for Arsenal is like you have to go there.
"To be honest, when I am at home and relaxing I never watch a game so I can't tell you what Barcelona or Milan's style of play is like either.
"I know their names - like Xavi, Iniesta and Kaka and Gattuso.
"But I just love playing football - where doesn't matter."
