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.

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.
