Manchester City boss Mark Hughes intends to push through a bid for Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.

The News of the World says Torres is part of City's £100 MILLION shopping list and Hughes is tempted by the news Torres has yet to renegotiate his deal at Liverpool.

The Spanish striker took a pay CUT when he moved to Anfield on the proviso that talks began on a new deal once he had proved his worth.

His advisors are looking for a £40,000-a-week leap to £120,000 but there is no sit-down in sight.
