Football update: Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho all set to lure Adebayor

Real Madrid has flared up its efforts for the hunt of Emmanuel Adebayor on a loan deal from Eastlands. The Spanish club is looking for a striker who would be on duty during the Champions League as they are interested in Emmanuel for a short - term loan move. Mourinho is desperate to land another striker to pair - up with Karim Benzema. After thrashing Athletico Madrid by 3 - 1 at home, Real Madrid wants to quench their thirst by winning Copa del Ray.

The club has decided to back Argentina International, Gonzalo Higuain, in the current transfer window as he is injured and will miss the rest of the season. The 47 years old Real boss is uncertain about Higuain and is also not delighted with the woeful form of Karim Benzema. Mourinho made the air clear by saying that Real Madrid needs another striker but that’s not because of Karim Benzema. Jose Mourinho stated that Benzema is a good players who’s not selfish and let his companions play, but he is not in a good form as he is playing too below his current potential. The ex - Chelsea chief wants to increase the striking power and when he looks at the squad he don’t see much options other than Higuain who’s injured and the reckless Benzema, while he sees Fernando Gago, Esteban Granero and Lassana Diarra on the bench. Mourinho has also discussed the return of Brazilian star Kaka who’s playing his first game since May.

As Higuain doesn’t seem to recover that fast and is ready for the imminent exit, all media is eyeing upon the procurement of ex - Arsenal, Emmanuel Adebayor. According to the Daily Mail, Real Madrid is geared up to pay 160,000 pounds per week wages to the player as he has the ability to bridge the gap with his agile act on the field. Previously Real distanced itself from signings this January but the back injury of Higuain has strained the management to sign his replacement. Real Madrid director general, Jorge Valdano, said, “Now I am exploring the market and looking for the possibilities, we’ll probably look for someone who can help out the club for atleast six or seven months. We have worked on many different options but let’s just not go into further details. It’s true that we are looking for a Number 9. ” According to the impartial reports circulated on different media channels, former Real Madrid forward Ruud van Nistelrooy has also been considered. The dutch man has far past his prime time and could be the last option among others. Bayern Munich veteran striker, Miroslav Klose, is also approached by Real Management apart from Hercules hit - man Nelson Haedo Valdez.

The 26 years old Emmanuel Adebayor seems to fit the bill as City are expected to let him go for a reasonable price. But at the same time, there are some speculations that Adebayor has rejected loan moves to other English clubs because he might had held out for a high - profile offer.
