Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor is set to fly to Monaco to complete a move to the Ligue 1 side according to the Daily Mirror.

Adebayor has been frozen out by City boss Roberto Mancini and has been looking for a move away from Eastlands.

Monaco is the club where Adebayor played before moving to England and Arsenal in 2006. He scored 18 goals in 79 league appearances for the Ligue 1 side.

The move back to Monaco may also be a favourable one as the principality is tax-free, meaning the Togo international would keep 100% of his wages.

It means City would be set to lose out around £14million on what they paid for Adebayor 18 months ago but Mancini may want to just get rid of the player to restore harmony in the dressing room.

Despite not playing recently, Adebayor had a good goalscoring record for City; he netted 15 times in 34 league appearances.

Adebayor scored 16 goals in 38 caps for Togo between 2000 and 2010 but recently retired from international football.

He announced his retirement 12th April 2010 and stated:"I have weighed up my feelings in the weeks and months since the attack and I am still haunted by the events which I witnessed on that horrible afternoon on the Togo team bus.
