Manchester City are still covering a percentage of Emmanuel Adebayor's Tottenham wages.

The Mail on Sunday says while it's reported he is on £85,000-a-week at Spurs, the striker actually earns more than double that because Manchester City still pay nearly £100k-a-week on top.

This is chief reason why finding a new club for Adebayor has proved so difficult for Tottenham.
