Manchester City have agreed a transfer which will see Wilfried Bony play his football in China from January, according to the Telegraph.
It’s no secret that Wilfried Bony hasn’t had the best of times at City and has since failed to impress Pep Guardiola which is more than likely to see him leave the club.
West Ham United are interested in the Ivorian’s services after Andre Ayew was ruled out for up to four months and a loan deal would be the ideal solution for both sides – Bony is only needed by West Ham until Ayew’s return, whilst the striker would need to be back in Manchester to complete a move to the Chinese Super League.
However one main stumbling block for Bony’s move to West Ham is his high wages, wages that would make him the Hammers’ highest paid player. It is claimed that City would have to subsidise some of his salary and the club may well be willing to do so in order to strip down Pep Guardiola’s squad.
Whilst both the fee and club are unknown, the deal is reported to be a “highly-lucrative permanent transfer” and could even result in some profit for Manchester City.
