Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp concedes Emmanuel Adebayor will have to take a huge pay-cut if he is to stay at White Hart Lane next season.
Adebayor has played a key role in helping Tottenham turn around their season. Since he signed on loan from Manchester City, the Londoners have lost just once and they can move level with Adebayor's parent club at the top of the Barclays Premier League on Saturday if they beat Wolves at White Hart Lane.
Spurs' top earners are thought to be on roughly £70,000 a week - about a third of what Adebayor receives at the Etihad Stadium, and Redknapp summed up the gulf in spending power between the two clubs by saying: "He has done well for us. He has worked hard but he is on amazing money."
