Manchester City's deal for Sergio Aguero could spark a transfer rebellion at City, according to The Daily Mail.
Nigel De Jong, Vincent Kompany and Micah Richards are reportedly unhappy with their new deals offered to them, once they learned that Aguero had been offered a £200,000 per week as part of his five-year deal.
And City face a fight to keep the trio in the wake of Aguero's move.
A City source said: "While efforts to bring the club’s wage bill into line are commendable, it doesn’t wash with the key members of the squad being offered less than half of what some of the top earners like Yaya Toure, Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero will earn."
"All the players are keen to stay and play their part in City’s success, but they don’t want to feel forgotten about."
De Jong has already expressed his frustration by the way contract negotiations have begun, having only been offered £80,000 a week.
Defender Richards, who has been linked with Liverpool and Arsenal, and Kompany, who could take over as club captain if Carlos Tevez leaves the club this summer, have both been offered deals of a similar size but are yet undecided to whether to sign or not.
