Adebayor urges Fabregas to join him at Real Madrid

Emmanuel Adebayor has risked worsening his already fractious relationship with Arsenal fans by urging Cesc Fabregas to sign for Real Madrid.
The Togo striker spent three-and-a-half years at the Emirates but left in July 2009 for Manchester City. He is currently on loan at Real after falling down the pecking order at Eastlands under Roberto Mancini.
Fabregas has been consistently linked with a move back to his former club Barcelona, but speculation has increased in the last few weeks that he may also be a target for Jose Mourinho's side.
Adebayor has now said his former team-mate would flourish at the Bernabeu.
"I had the chance to play with Cesc for some years and I would love to have him here as a team-mate," Adebayor said.
"He is a great player and a great person. If he came to Real Madrid he would be very happy. He would be a great acquisition for the team."
