Man City's Adebayor snubs Blackburn in favour of Madrid return

Emmanuel Adebayor is hoping to win a permanent move to Real Madrid after turning down an offer from Blackburn Rovers.

The Manchester City striker is desperate to find regular first team football, which he has been unable to do at Eastlands, and hopes it is at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Togo international, who spent the second part of last season on loan with Madrid, has snubbed interest from the likes of Blackburn, Zenit St Petersburg and Paris Saint-Germain indicating the is keen for a Real return.

"I say thank you to PSG for thinking of me, but for all the respect I owe them, I will not go there," he said.

"At Real, I got a taste for what it's like winning a trophy. I can only go where we play to win a trophy or win the championship and not to play mid-table.

"It is clear that I will not at Zenit or Blackburn.

"I'd like to stay with the merengue. But you know I am a footballer and what is important is to play football whether it's Manchester City or elsewhere."
