Real Madrid have got their man! On Mourinho's 48th birthday, Manchester City's Emmanuel Adebayor agreed terms to join on loan to the end of the season, with a buy out option of reportedly €15 million in the summer. The move ends speculation as to whom will stand in for the injured Higuaín, with Diego Forlán the last in a long line of players who were apparently considered. Mahamadou Diarra drew the short straw to give up his place in the squad to Adebayor, and the Mali midfielder has already agreed a move to Monaco. Elsewhere the market is starting to warm up as the 31st January deadline approaches, with Valencia signing Brazilian striker Jonas Gonçalves and Sevilla tying up midfielders Medel and Rakitic. Espanyol's depleted coffers have been bolstered by the sale of Víctor Ruíz to Napoli (and as we go to press maybe Didac to AC Milan?), and Zaragoza have strengthened their midfield with Saint Etienne's N'Daw. Only four days remain until the window closes, but as usual we expect a hive of activity in the run up, especially on Monday after clubs have got their weekend matches out of the way. Watch this space for the latest news! (27.01.11)
