Real label Adebayor a 'physical marvel'

New Real Madrid signing Emmanuel Adebayor has been hailed as a "physical marvel'' after passing his medical ahead of a loan move from Manchester City.

Adebayor, 26, is in the Spanish capital to complete a move for the rest of the season and after undertaking tests on the Togo striker, Real's chief of medical services Carlos Diez said he was impressed with Jose Mourinho's latest signing.

Diez told Real's official website: "He is a physical marvel. He is in very good physical condition and will be able to immediately be incorporated into the team.''

Real will sign Adebayor on loan with an option to buy him in the summer, though the former Arsenal frontman has been signed chiefly as a temporary replacement for injured striker Gonzalo Higuain.

He was initially a massive hit at City following his £25 million move north from the Gunners 18 months ago, scoring in his first four games, but his star faded after Roberto Mancini replaced Mark Hughes as manager.
