However, los Blancos have no interest in the Ivorian.
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has attempted to include unwanted front man Emmanuel Adebayor as part of the current negotiations over the sale of star man Gareth Bale to Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The Spanish giants’ president, Florentino Perez, and his counterpart from White Hart Lane have been meeting for face-to-face talks this week in Miami to thrash out terms over the word-record transfer of the Wales international to the Santiago Bernabeu next season.
However, so far those talks have been progressing slowly, with the north London club understood to be demanding a fee of £100 million for the 24-year-old, while the Liga champions are believed to only be willing to splash out £85m for Bale this summer.
And in an attempt to help push through the long-awaited transfer, Levy is said to have offered los Blancos the Ivory Coast international as part of any deal to take Bale to the Spanish capital.
But Madrid, who took the striker on a six-month loan in January 2011, when Adebayor scored eight goals in 22 appearances for the Spaniards, have turned down the chance to sign the 29-year-old, preferring instead to pay the transfer fee in full for Bale.
