Man City face being lumbered with £30M wage-bill from unwanted players

Manchester City are struggling to clear £30 MILLION from their wage bill.

The Sunday Mirror says manager Roberto Mancini is desperate to ditch Emmanuel Adebayor, Craig Bellamy, Roque Santa Cruz, Wayne Bridge, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Jo and Nedum Onuoha from his first-team squad.

But he has found his plans hamstrung by the astronomical salaries that players are banking at Eastlands.

City are ready to take huge losses on a group of players recruited by former boss Mark Hughes who cost the club a staggering £85m in transfer fees alone.

But so far there have been no takers, with clubs unwilling to meet either City's cut-price valuations or the big-money deals currently being paid at Eastlands.
