Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho does not expect Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor to join the club before the close of the transfer window.
Mourinho believes the Premier League big-spenders have no desire to part with the Togolese star, while insisting his Santiago Bernabeu outfit may not be able to compete on the financial playing field with the Citizens.
When asked on his chances of taking him to Los Merengues, he said: "I think no chance.
"The historical dimension of Real Madrid and Manchester City you can't compare. But the economic dimension you can compare and maybe they will win.
"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."
