Jose: No chance of picking up pair

The former Inter Milan and Chelsea manager has been linked with a

number of high-profile names since taking the helm at the Bernabeu

earlier this year, including star striker Adebayor, who was an

unused substitute in Monday’s 3-0 league victory over Liverpool.

However, speaking exclusively to Sky Sports News HD, the Portuguese

boss admitted City’s powerful financial position would make it near

impossible to prise the 26-year-old away from Eastlands. When asked

about the possibility of signing the Togolese forward, Mourinho

said: “I think no chance. “The historical dimension of Real Madrid

and Manchester City you can’t compare. But the economical dimension

you can compare. “And 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.” Chelsea ace Didier Drogba is another striking

star to be linked with a move to the Primera Liga giants, but

Mourinho believes acquiring his signature is an equally unlikely

prospect, adding: “Again, no chance.”
