Wilfried Bony could make a return to Premier League club Swansea after an unsuccessful spell at Manchester City. Bony joined the Blues in the 2015 January transfer window for £28m and never quite got going under manager at the time Manuel Pellegrini. It was clear upon Pep’s arrival that Bony’s future was elsewhere as he was sent on loan to Stoke City for the 2016/17 season but failed to make a serious impression there.
Reports in the Mirror today are saying that the Swans are ‘confident’ of bringing the Ivorian back to the Welsh club for a fee of around £13m. A major factor in this transfer is the departure of Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton for a reported £45m which would provide the finance to pay for Wilfried Bony. The striker scored an impressive 34 goals in 18 months for Swansea and both he and the club will be hoping returning to Wales will rekindle his old form.
Bony is one of many players that City are keen to offload this summer and with reports that the Blues are still in for another striker this summer amongst fresh reports of the Alexis Sanchez transfer and the departure of Bony would help free up the wage bill for another big summer signing.
