Will Emmanuel Adebayor secure a permanent move to Real Madrid?

Last night Emmanuel Adebayor helped his temporary team Real Madrid hammer Tottenham 4-0 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.

It will take a minor miracle for Tottenham to recover from such a hefty defeat.


Not often in recent years has Emmanuel Adebayor been described as a hero but last night he was one of Real’s heroes.

He would have enjoyed his two goals against Tottenham being an ex-Arsenal player and the brace could be the most important goals of his career so far.


The former-Arsenal striker has enjoyed his loan spell in the Spanish capital since his January transfer window move. He has scored five goals in 14 appearances but more importantly has proved a very effective targetman.


When asked if he would like to make a permanent move he replied: “Of course I do,” “I don’t know at the moment [about my future]. I just keep working hard in training. I still have one or two months left so we will see.”


Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho also seems keen on keeping the striker. He revealed after yesterday defeat of Tottenham: “The most important thing is that we have three strikers. I’ve wanted this from the very first day. We’ve proved that with two strikers it’s very difficult and with three we are covered.

“With the injury that Benzema has, we still have one striker playing and one on the bench, and that’s how it should be. And at the moment I’m happy with all three of them, who are all completely different types of players with different qualities for the team.”


Many people have questioned Emmanuel Adebayor’s attitude at times, including me. He often looks lethargic and not interested in playing, however when he is in-form and at his best he has all the attributes to be a fantastic striker.

He also doesn’t seem to show any loyalty to a club and strikes me as mercenary. At Real Madrid his attitude has been spot-on. It just remains to be seen if he can keep it up long enough to secure a permanent move in the summer.


The loan move to Real Madrid came as a bit of a surprise. Adebayor couldn’t even get into the City side earlier this season. And suddenly he signs for one of the biggest clubs in the world. It seemed like a strange move for Real to be making but it’s certainly paid off.


Adebayor could find himself on the bench in the near future. Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain made his return from injury against Tottenham last night and in-form French striker Karim Benzema is expected to return from injury very soon.

The question is if Emmanuel Adebayor finds himself on the bench in the near future will he sulk or will he show the sort of attitude that will earn him a permanent move to the club?

He is in charge of his own destiny. If he puts the effort in between now and the end of the season I can see Real making his move a permanent one, if not then he will return to Manchester City and be heading to a yet another club next season.

Will Real Madrid Sign Emmanuel Adebayor on a permanent contract this summer?
