Monaco put together package to buy Man City strker Adebayor

AS Monaco are willing to offer £9 million to land Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Mirror says Adebayor has been cleared to talk to his old club Monaco about a cut-price £9million transfer.

Adebayor has no part to play now in Roberto Mancini's plans, and the 26-year-old striker could be sold to the French outfit before the weekend - with City ready to take a massive hit on the £25m fee they paid Arsenal for him in July 2009.

Monaco are willing to take on Adebayor's king-sized salary - as they will be helped by the fact that the principality has a tax-free status.

That means the Togo international could pocket around £100,000 a week and not lose out.
