REAL Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has admitted that the chances of him being able to nab Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City and/or Didier Drogba from Chelsea are slim…verging on nil.

Mourinho conceded that City’s imperious financial backing would make a move for Adebayor almost impossible, telling Sky Sports News;

“I think no chance. The historical dimension of Real Madrid and Manchester City you can’t compare. But the economical dimension you can compare.

Maybe they will win [the Premier League]. So I think at the minute Man City is the club to keep their best players and to buy the players that nobody expects them to buy.

I don’t think, just one year after buying Emmanuel from Arsenal, he’s the player to leave.”

The Madrid boss was then prompted about his reported interest in signing Chelsea striker Drogba before the transfer deadline, but answered fairly decisively;

“Again, no chance.”

Jose better get his finger out in the transfer market as the Real squad is currently looking woefully short on attacking options with only Cristiano Ronaldo, Gonzalo Higuain, Karim Benzema, Kaka, Angel Di Maria and Mesut Ozil to pick from. It’s a dearth I tell you!
