The 27-year-old has been in exile from Eastlands after falling out of favor with City boss Roberto Mancini, and deemed surplus to requirements. After spending half a season on loan with Real Madrid, the striker was then sent to Tottenham, who now have a £14million option to make the move permanent, according to reports in the Sun.
Currently, the Citizens are paying half of Adebayor's £170,000-a-week wages, but the ex-Arsenal striker has admitted he is willing to take a pay cut in order to make his move to White Hart Lane permanent.
However, Tottenham will have competition in the form of Juventus and Paris St Germain, who are both also keen on the lanky 27-year-old.
Mancini is keen to get his wages off their books, in order to free up funds to move for Napoli's Edinson Cavani and Marek Hamsik, and further reports indicate that they are willing to offer a £4m discount in order to get rid of the Togo striker.
