Wilfried Bony should stay at Swansea

Published Add your comment

Wilfried Bony is set to attract great attention in this transfer window, with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid seemingly interested in his services.

With some of Europe’s elite rumoured to be monitoring the Ivorian, it could just be a matter of time until he joins one of them.


The question is, should he leave Swansea behind? It would be extremely difficult to turn down a side like Real Madrid or Manchester City, but would it be wise for him to move away from the Welsh outfit?

Should Chelsea come knocking - with the quality of players in their squad - he'd have to consider a move, with a huge financial sum and a number of trophies also possible. 

But with a club that plays with only one striker in Diego Costa, and has Loic Remy and Didier Drogba in reserve, he would find it difficult to break into the squad.

A move to Spain would surely appeal to Bony, but with Real Madrid looking irresistible and also operating with only one striker he would struggle to replace Karim Benzema in their BBC of Bale, Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.

City possible? 

A move to Manchester City could be the most realistic move for the player, but again he could be resorted to just being a squad player.

When all of City’s players are fit, Bony would struggle to get in front of Sergio Aguero, Stevan Jovetic and Edin Dzeko in the starting XI.

The best decision for the striker could be to reject a move away from the Liberty Stadium and stay with Swansea for the sole reason of regular first team football.
