Emmanuel Adebayor's loan deal with Real Madrid has reached its conclusion. According to Marca, he will return to Manchester City because Madrid isn't interested in signing him for the transfer fee of $14.2 million.
The 27-year-old Togolese striker will depart after playing only 280 minutes this season and scoring just twice in La Liga.
