Man City to test shaky Spurs with Bale bid

Manchester City are monitoring Gareth Bale's situation at Tottenham.

With Harry Redknapp's position as manager clouded, the Manchester Evening News says come doubts over whether his star players, including Bale, will want to stay in his absence.

With three years left on Bale’s contract, City can expect to be charged around £40m for his services but that’s unlikely to put manager Roberto Mancini off.

Emmanuel Adebayor, who spent last season on loan at White Hart Lane, is the obvious sweetener and the Togo striker is likely to leave whether Spurs can find a way to fit him into a wage structure that has a ceiling of £70,000 a week or not.
