Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy is poised for a sensational return to Liverpool according to reports in the guardian.co.uk.

The 32-year-old Welsh international finds himself surplus to requirements at the Etihad Stadium, and spent last season on loan at Cardiff City.

Citizens boss Roberto Mancini has made no secret of his desire to sell Bellamy this summer - but the player's £95,000 per week wages have proved to be a substantial stumbling block for a number of interested parties.

However, Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is believed to be considering a surprise swoop for Bellamy - a move that would see the player return to Anfield, where he spent a solitary season in 2006-07 scoring seven goals in 27 appearances under then manager Rafael Benitez.


 

But after failing to make a big enough impact at Liverpool, Bellamy moved on to West Ham, where he joined for £7.5million, and played their for two years before signing for Manchester City in 2009.

Liverpool are prepared to offer Bellamy a similarly lucrative contract in order to orchestrate a return to Anfield, providing City will not demand any transfer fee.
