Real Madrid Capture Adebayor Signing Until End Of The Season

Real Madrid have finally solved their forward starved crisis by taking Emmanuel Adebayor off Manchester City’s hands for a season long loan.

Real’s interest had been on-off for a week now and had originally planned to sign Adebayor but his wage demands were a vital setback in the deal. However, after several days of prolonging the transfer, Real finally settled to welcome the Togolese striker to the Bernabeau.

City announced on their official website: “We can confirm that the club has agreed to loan Emmanuel Adebayor to Real Madrid for the rest of the season.

“The player will travel to Spain on Wednesday to have a medical. Madrid have an option to purchase the 26-year-old at the end of his temporary spell in the Spanish capital.”

Adebayor since arriving at Eastlands had enjoyed his spell, scoring 14 in 26 Premier League appearances last season, but has been pushed to the side following Mancini’s signings of Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko.

The Togolese striker has been given limited opportunities this season with Mancini in charge and the out of favour striker has pleaded for a move away from Eastlands this January.

Real Madrid came knocking last week, which then spilled into this week and early on Tuesday evening, it finally seemed Adebayor would be ending his nightmare at Eastlands, for the time being at least.

The deal is a loan deal with a view to buy Adebayor at the end of the campaign if he performs well enough.

Mourinho had been in the market for a striker following an injury that would halt Gonzalo Higuain’s progress at Real Madrid for a good 2-3 months after he sustained a back injury, one which needed surgery.
