Manchester City have apparently ‘significantly` out bid Spurs in the chase to sign Wigan Athletic and Honduras midfield sensation Wilson Palacios.
The Independent report that Latics and Tottenham Hotspur had reached a deal only for an unnamed Premier League club, reportedly Manchester City, to offer a much larger fee to Wigan chairman Dave Whelan.
Spurs may have cash to spend but City have cash to burn and late last night Tottenham were ready to admit defeat when they couldn`t even ascertain how much City have offered Latics for the 24 year old midfield man.
Palacios himself is still undecided if he wants to leave the club that showed faith in him and gave him his big break in English football with the Honduran torn between showing loyalty to the Latics and Steve Bruce or setting himself and his family up financially.
Palacios was due to bring his parents and brothers and sisters over from Honduras to live in the UK in the next few weeks and he has been house hunting in and around the select areas of Cheshire.
With City`s interest Palacios may find the lure of the wealth of Eastlands to great to turn down and Spurs may find it too hard to compete with
