Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has told coach Jose Mourinho to forget about signing Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Togo striker, 27, is desperate to seal a permanent switch to the Bernabeu after notching eight goals in 22 appearances on loan last season.

Real have just splashed out £4.5m to land Spain Under-21 striker Jose Maria Callejon from Espanyol, and Ronaldo said: "We don't need to sign another forward.

"I think we should be happy with the line-up as it already is."
