Adebayor was offered £245,000-a-week – more than DOUBLE his current deal – to leave for Qatar, says the Mirror.
The 30-year-old Togo international said: ”The transfer window was open for a month and we all knew what was happening. It didn’t all happen in 48 hours.
“The club decided to send me out on loan, which I was pleased with. There were five good clubs interested and I [narrowed it down to] three before choosing the one I wanted. But Mr Levy was against the one I chose, because it was a rival.
“But I’m very happy to stay at the club and do my job.”
