Real Madrid are pushing ahead with their bid to sign Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor on loan.
Jose Mourinho has expressed his wish for a new striker in the January transfer window, but Real’s bid for former striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has been rejected by Hamburg.
The Dutchman has voiced his displeasure at being refused a move back to the Santiago Bernabeu but that looks to have firmly opened the door for the Togolese star.
Skysports.com understands that City are only willing to let one more striker leave the club this January, after already loaning Roque Santa Cruz to Blackburn.
Jo has been linked with a number of moves, but Roberto Mancini would rather see the Togolese striker moved on, and that now looks the most likely scenario.
Monaco had been leading the chase for Adebayor, but Real were always on the radar and now they are set push ahead with a deal.

Will Roberto Mancini allow Emmanuel Adebayor to leave for Real Madrid? Well apparently he will allow him to leave in preference to keeping Jo at Eastlands as it seems highly unlikely anyone would make a move to sign the Brazilian with questionable ability.
Jose Mourinho has found himself with very few attacking options and has earmarked a move for the former Arsenal man, a move that would surely appeal to the Togo international who has thus far managed just two Premier League starts this season.
Mancini seems to be steadily removing many players that Mark Hughes had brought in before him and the 26 year old could well be next although any move to the La Liga giants is likely to be on loan and not a permanent deal.
