Etihad Stadium side ready to make mammoth offer for White Hart Lane wide-man. Too good to turn down?
Bale out: City set to offer Spurs £40m players-plus-cash deal
Massive transfer would see the Welsh winger triple his salary and potentially see Adebayor and another star swap Eastlands for Tottenham
Super-rich City will try to make the move happen by offering the Welsh wonder THREE times his wages, which would put him on over £100,000-a-week.
Striker Emmanuel Adebayor – on loan from City to Spurs for the season – would make his switch permanent if the clubs can agree the more complicated part of the talks.
City may also offer another player in the deal if Spurs boss Harry Redknapp and his chairman Daniel Levy do want to play ball, with Nigel De Jong and Adam Johnson both potentially on the list of candidates.

Tottenham may struggle to keep their big stars if they fail to secure Champions League football for next term, something that looked on the cards prior to the turn of the year, and an offer of his magnitude for Gareth Bale may therefore be considered by the North London club.
Gareth Bale has been in excellent form over the past two seasons and this has led to genuine interest from a number of Europe’s elite, most notably from Barcelona. Last summer Tottenham chairman prevented Luka Modric from pursuing a move to Chelsea, a move the Croatian clearly wished to make, could the White Hart Lane side prevent such a deal occurring this time around?
The inclusion of Emmanuel Adebayor in any deal to buy Gareth Bale may tempt Redknapp as the Togo international has been the club’s most effective striking weapon, notching up 16 goals and 11 assists this term. Adam Johnson would of course be handy addition too.
Gareth Bale may well like the idea of tripling his current salary and also the chance to push for major honours so this deal, if it is to be believed, may well be one that could lead to the sale of the former Southampton man.
