Real Madrid move for Man City striker after Ruud snub

Real Madrid have made a move for Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor, according to reports in Spain.
Bernabeu boss Jose Mourinho is in the hunt for a forward after losing Gonzalo Higuain to injury for the rest of the season.
Ruud van Nistelrooy was the Spanish club's number one target but, after Hamburg ruled out selling the Dutchman, Mourinho has turned his attention to Adebayor.
Real want the 26-year-old Togo star on loan for the rest of the season, say Spanish daily Marca, and are willing to cover 50 per cent of his £160,000-a-week wages.
The Catalan giants are also prepared to pay City €2 million and give them the option of a friendly match, claims the report.
Adebayor is desperate to quit Eastlands after falling down the pecking order, with Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli all ahead of him, but it remains to be seen whether big-spending City will give him the green light to move.
