London, May 16 (ANI): To bring two of the best players in the Premier League to Eastlands, Manchester City is ready to give Emmanuel Adebayor and Stephen Ireland as part of a 80 million pounds package for Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres.
City's only fear is that the pair will only leave Liverpool for another team in the Champions League.
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 is determined to make their mark in the summer transfer, as Gerrard and Torres are proven performers, News of the World reports.
Chelsea is also confident of getting Torres as part of a British record transfer fee; as they cannot offer players in exchange.
City's bid for the Liverpool duo is ambitious, but they believe they are putting forward a solution to the Kop's financial problems, the paper reports. (ANI)
