London, Apr 28(ANI): Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is ready to dump 50 million pound worth of talent out of his team during this summer's transfer window.

According to reports, Mancini wants to sell Emmanuel Adebayor, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Wayne Bridge and Stephen Ireland.

The Italian wants to reshape his squad and the expected 50 million pound from the sale would be a good start to table a bid for Liverpool striker Fernando Torres, The Sun reports.

He regards the changes to be crucial for the development of the team for the 2010-11 Premier League season.

Adebayor, who cost 25 million pound from Arsenal last year, has hit only 13 goals in 28 games.

Wright-Phillips returned to City in August 2008 for 8.5 million pounds from Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Bridge, who cost 10 million pound from Chelsea in January 2009, has had a disastrous season hit by injury and personal problems involving his ex-fiancee Vanessa Perroncel and former Chelsea pal John Terry. (ANI)
