Real Madrid are willing to offer Raul Albiol to Manchester City as part of a swap for Emmanuel Adebayor.

Albiol accepts he has little chance of regular first team action at Real under coach Jose Mourinho and wants to move on before the summer market shuts.

A switch to City suits the former Valencia defender and this has opened the door to swap talks involving Adebayor.

Mourinho is keen to bring the striker back to Real - but his club's money men refuse to consider City's asking price. A compromise could be reached by including Albiol in their offer.
