Jose Mourinho says that Real Madrid are not in talks to sign Emmanuel Adebayor, despite the Togo international’s presence in the crowd as Real beat Leicester in a pre-season friendly.
Asked if he was looking to seal a permanent deal for Adebayor, Mourinho said:
“No. He is here because he is our friend and he belongs to us. He is one of us. It doesn’t matter if he is playing at Real Madrid or Manchester City or another club, he is one of us. He was with us for six months and went to the heart of everybody. He is a great lad and everybody loves him. When he called us asking permission to come here today, there was not one second of thought. He was with us in the dressing room and he is always welcome.”
