Manchester City are shelling out big to Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Daily Mail says it has been reported that City are still paying £95,000 a week of the £170,000 Adebayor stood to earn if he simply sat on his backside in the reserves, with Tottenham making up the difference after paying a purchase price of only £5million.

Trusted sources close to the Manchester club claim the figure is closer to £40,000 a week.
