Real Madrid are closing in on a deal to bring out-of-sorts Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor to the Bernabeau.

The former Arsenal hit-man has been a bit-part player at Eastlands this season, with boss Roberto Mancini preferring to use club captain Carlos Tevez as a lone striker with support from attacking midfielders on either flank.

And since the multi-million-pound arrivals of Mario Balotelli, and Edin Dzeko just last week, Adebayor has slipped even further down the pecking order, and hasn’t featured for City since December 1st when they defeated Red Bull Salzburg 3-0 in the Europa League.

With Gonzalo Higuain ruled out for a few months with a back injury, the Galacticos are short on firepower, and manager Jose Mourinho is keen to bring in a top quality front man before the end of the transfer window.


Having failed in a bid to bring former Manchester United star Ruud Van Nistelrooy back to the Bernabeau, they have now turned their attention to securing the former Togo international on loan with a view to a permanent move at the end of the season.

Manchester City fans will be reluctant to see Adebayor go, but will take comfort in the fact that Spain is his most likely destination as opposed to staying in England and moving to one of their Barclays Premier League rivals.
