Adebayor happy to wait all summer

Published Add your comment

Emmanuel Adebayor insists he is ready to wait until the end of the summer transfer window to try and seal a move to Real Madrid.

Adebayor joined Madrid on loan from Manchester City in January and has made no secret of his desire to become a permanent part of Jose Mourinho's squad. No deal has yet been forthcoming, with Madrid heavily linked with South American strikers Sergio Aguero and Neymar, but Adebayor is happy to bide his time if it means he can seal a move to the Bernabeu.

When asked about his future, he told Marca: "We have to wait. I have (made) it clear that I want to play for Madrid and I will wait until the last day. I'm not going to sign for any team until August 31. I will wait for them until the last day at 11 at night."

He added: "If then Madrid have decided not to buy me, I will search for another team."

The 27-year-old Togolese forward is positive about his chances of returning to Madrid, for whom he scored eight goals during his loan spell, he added: "I think that I'm an option.

"I honestly think that I left a good impression there. I arrived for six months and I did everything I could for the shirt.

"I settled in quickly, I played and scored goals. I did my job, although I can give more.

"Mourinho told me that he would do everything he could for me to return to Madrid. We had a good relationship, I think that he was happy with me.

"For me, Madrid are everything. I love the club."
