Man City willing to offer players, cash for Liverpool stars Gerrard, Torres
The News of the World says City have lined up Emmanuel Adebayor and Stephen Ireland as bait in an £80m package for Gerrard and Torres.
City will put forward the pairing as part of a sensational deal to bring two of the best players in the Premier League to Eastlands.
Although City fear the pair will only leave Liverpool for another team in the Champions League, they are serious bidders for the world-class duo.
Adebayor has been unhappy at City for most of the season and Ireland has failed to make an impact after winning last season's player of the year award.
City are willing to strike a deal for around £40m cash, plus two players with proven pedigree to assist Liverpool's rebuilding project.
