Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is keen to find a buyer for Emmanuel Adebayor.

Former Arsenal man Adebayor has never hidden his desire to return to Real with the 27-year-old claiming he will reject all other offers to make the move to Real Madrid.

Mancini is hoping a deal can be struck to see Adebayor get his wish to move to Real.

"I hope for him that he can do this (join Madrid) and also Real Madrid can buy him," Mancini told Sky Sports News.

"If Manu is happy with this I am happy for him."
