Lazio are monitoring Emmanuel Adebayor's situation at Real Madrid.

Adebayor is on-loan at Real from Manchester City and can be signed permanently for £11 million.

Corriere dello Sport says Real chiefs, however, have already made up their minds not to pursue an outright deal for the centre-forward.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito is watching developments closely and has drawn up a three-year contract offer worth €4 million-a-year for Adebayor to consider once he is given official word by Real.
