Manchester City

Guardiola’s overhaul could continue in interesting Man City transfer report

It was a wonderful maiden voyage of this Premier League campaign for the Manchester City fans still celebrating in the Transfer Tavern. 

Having splashed the cash over the course of the summer, the Sky Blues in our bar are confident of a genuine Premier League title tilt under Pep Guardiola. With the Spaniard’s squad taking shape in the last few months, reports from the Daily Mirror certainly prove interesting.

They claim Etihad outcast Wilfried Bony is of interest to former club Swansea City, who reportedly want to land him in a cut-price deal.

The Ivorian arrived at City in January 2015 in a deal thought to have been around £28m, though has seriously struggled since the move from south Wales. He was farmed out on loan to Stoke City last season, though struggled to convince whatsoever there.

Now, the Jack Army are understood to be keen on luring him back to the Liberty Stadium and the 28-year-old could return, it seems.

Touted for big things upon his arrival, it’s a shame for the Citizens to potentially lose so much money on what is undoubtedly a good Premier League striker.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

An absolute disaster and it’s not exactly clear why. Bony is clearly a decent striker at this level, though the Pep Guardiola era surely has no place for him, so a return to Swansea City could help him recapture his best.

Thoughts?
