Manchester City have moved close to securing the first bumper signing of January Transfer Window. As per the recent reports from British tabloids, Manchester City have agreed a stunning £30 Million fee for Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony.
Wilfried Bony is expected to join Manchester City in next few days and he is set to set sign a four-year-deal which will be pay Bony £1,00,000-a-week. Bony’s agent Dalibor Lacina was in Manchester to hold advanced talks to complete a move in the January Transfer Window.
Bony is on the International duties for Ivory Coast in the African Cup of Nations. Bony will be away from premier League for a month and by the time he comes back, he might be a Manchester City player.
City’s interest in Bony has been well documented in recent weeks, as Pellegrini is on the hunt for a new striker after the recent striking woes to Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko. Bony is the stand out choice for Manchester City as Bony will be fit to play in the knock-out stages of the Champions League and as Champions League knock out rounds will start in February, he will be back to add to City’s attacking potentials.
Wilfried Bony joined Swansea from Eridivise Club Vitesse Arnhem and has scored 25 goals in 48 games since then. Bony was the highest goal scorer in the Premier League in the year 2014 with 18 goals. Bony’s move to city would mean that the Top 5 goal scorer in the Premier League for the year 2014 would be playing in the city of Manchester.
If and when Bony joins Manchester City, he will complete the Manchester dominance for the leading goal scorers in the year 2014. Swansea manager Gary Monk has been aware of the prospect of losing his star striker in January. In his last press conference Gary Monk said: “it would take an astronomical fee to prise their record signing away during the January transfer window”.
It seems as if that astronomical fee has arrived for Swansea’s hitman and the club is left with no other choice but to accept the offer and cash in on their star striker. Wilfried Bony is on the verge of making his switch to Manchester City worth a £30 Million transfer fee on a £1,00,000-a-week deal. Bony’s move could have a very big say in the title race between Manchester City and Chelsea.
