Adebayor resists Real to fight for place at City

Emmanuel Adebayor is determined to fight for a starting berth at Manchester City, despite a reported approach from Real Madrid, although the Togo striker admits he may be forced to leave the club in January.

The 26-year-old had to settle for a place on the bench for City's Premier League opener at Tottenham last weekend as boss Roberto Mancini chose to flood the midfield, leaving Carlos Tevez to lead the line on his own.

After the 0-0 draw at White Hart Lane, Adebayor met with the manager to discuss his position at the club. And, although the talks were positive, the former Arsenal forward is not ruling out a possible move away from Eastlands.

"I had a chat with the manager after the Spurs game which was good. But managers can change," he told The People. "Today they love you and then you think you are going to be moving. I don't want to look too far into the future. Who knows? By January maybe the manager will tell me to leave - or maybe I will ask to leave.

"What is important for me is to have clear focus on playing for City and fighting for my place in the team and that is what I intend to do. As a footballer you have lots of difficult times. Being sat on the bench for the first game of the season at Tottenham was tough for me and I admit I was a little bit upset."

Widespread reports in the UK press on Sunday claim that Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is ready to launch a £20 million move for Adebayor. Mourinho has given up on being reunited with Chelsea striker Didier Drogba and has turned his attention to the City striker.

But Adebayor, who likened being courted by AC Milan to being fancied by Beyonce when he was an Arsenal player, has not had his head turned this time.

"You have to fight for your place. I am very happy to be part of this club and I love the challenge of making it at City. Now I'm waiting for my chance. I'm playing for one of the big teams in England and all I need now is to be playing games and scoring goals."
