Adebayor to join Real in cut price deal

Emmanuel Adebayor could be allowed to join loan club Real Madrid in a cut-price £12million deal from Manchester City this summer.
The Togolese striker was signed from Arsenal by former City boss Mark Hughes in a deal worth around £25million in summer 2009.
However, as Adebayor lost his place in the side over the 12 months since Roberto Mancini took charge of the Eastlands hot-seat in December 2009, City were keen to get him off the wage bill in the recent January window in order to help fund their £27million signing of Edin Dzeko from Wolfsburg.
As a result it has now emerged that City requested a payment of £1.7million from Real Madrid to loan Adebayor for the next six months, with a further £12million to pay if the move is made permanent next summer - almost half of what they paid out to sign him from the Gunners.
Adebayor's chances of earning a full-time deal at the Bernabeu have been boosted after he scored twice in his first two games for Jose Mourinho's outfit.
