Adebayor wants to stay in Madrid

Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor hopes to turn his loan move from Manchester City to Real Madrid into a permanent one.The 27-year-old did his cause no harm on Tuesday, with a brace in Real’s 4-0 thrashing of Spurs in their Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash at the Bernabeu.

Adebayor, who has scored five times in 13 games for Real, is hopeful his hard work will pay off with a permanent contract in the Spanish capital under Jose Mourinho.

“I have two months to go and the club will decide what they want to do – but of course I want to stay,” Adebayor said.

“I just have to keep working hard every day in training”.

“They brought me here to help with the run-in to the end of the season – and today I have done that well.”

Adebayor has now scored 10 goals in 10 games against Tottenham, with eight of those coming while playing for Arsenal, and he admits he always looks forward to playing the Londoners.

“I am very happy when I play against Spurs as I always have a chance to score,” he said.

“So now we have to concentrate on the second game to go through to the semi-finals.”
