Manchester City have opened talks with Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor. Sky Sports says talks were opened at the weekend and have continued. Exact details remain sketchy but negotiations are said to be at a 'significant level'.

Adebayor's future at Arsenal has been in doubt for some months but a move to Manchester City would still be something of a surprise given they signed Roque Santa Cruz three weeks ago and are expected to announce the purchase of Carlos Tevez during the next 48 hours.
