Manchester City will have to offer Wilfried Bony £200,000-a-week to bring the Swansea striker to the champions, according to The Sun

The Swans record buy has nine goals in his last 15 games and would help replace the injured Sergio Aguero, but only at a premium price.

City have reportedly offered the Ivorian star £70,000-a-week, but Bony is holding out for almost three times that amount before he signs on at the Etihad.

Mates Rates 

Bony is 'well aware' that his Ivory Coast countryman and friend Yaya Toure, who will be heading to the Africa Cup of Nations alongside the Swansea striker, is currently on £240,000-a-week and the Swansea striker isn't willing to settle for less than £200,000.

Amazingly, the figure that Bony is requesting is four times his current wage at Swansea. The 26-year-old is on around £50,000 a week at the Welsh club.

Striker Troubles

City's striker troubles were evident in their recent FA Cup comeback against Sheffield Wednesday.

England midfielder James Milner led the line and scored the goals that helped the blue side of Manchester creep past the blue side of Sheffield, with Edin Dzeko and Aguero still sidelined.

Champions League in Pellegrini's thoughts

Pelligrini willing to sell strikers Dzeko or Stevan Jovetic in order to bring the £30m star to the Etihad.

This would also allow Bony to play in City's Champions League campaign, which continues next month in a tie against Barcelona in the final 16 of the competition.

City will be hoping that the Swans star will help them get past the Spanish giants who knocked them out at the same stage of last year's competition.
