City set to offload Bellamy
MANCHESTER City have decided that Criag Bellamy can leave the club after completing the signing of Spanish winger David Silva.
Silva is set to fill the Welshman’s position down the left side of attack and therefore deemed surplus to requirements.
Manager Roberto Mancini has not been convinced that Bellamy merits a place in his starting team, although he was one of their more impressive performers last season.
Counting against him is his inability to get along with the Italian, clashing several times last season and the club held an internal investigation after Bellamy was overheard allegedly saying something detramental about the former Inter Milan coach after his side’s 2-0 home loss against Everton in March.
Silva is officially a City player after the former Valencia man passed a medical yesterday.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has also shared his admiration for the Wales international but suggested that it would be out of his clubs price wage to secure his services; “City bought him for �12m and the player must be on considerably high wages,” he said. “I just don’t see it happening.”
