Adebayor passes medical at Madrid

Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor has completed his loan move to Real Madrid after passing a medical in the Spanish capital yesterday.

The 26-year-old may move to the La Liga side on a permanent deal at the end of the season.

"He is a physical marvel," Real chief of medical services Carlos Diez said of the forward, who joined City for £25m from Arsenal 18 months ago. "He is in very good physical condition and will be able to immediately be incorporated into the team."
