[LNB]The striker, who has five goals in 13 Real games, is on loan from Manchester City until the end of the season. [LNB]"I have two months to go and the club will decide what they want to do - but of course I want to stay," he said. [LNB]"I just have to keep working hard every day in training. [LNB]"They brought me here to help with the run-in to the end of the season - and today I have done that well." [LNB] [LNB][LNB] Madrid coach Jose Mourinho brought Adebayor to the Bernabeu because Gonzalo Higuain was out through injury. [LNB]The Argentine made his long-awaited return on Tuesday night, while Frenchman Karim Benzema is injured after hitting a run of fine form.
