BBC reports confirm that the Premier League champions are in advanced talks with Swansea to sign the 26-year-old Ivory Coast striker, while Kacou, speaking to Sky Sports, said he believed a deal for Bony was close to being finalised.
“It’s about some small details about money but I think things will go all right in a few days,” Kacou said. “I will fly with him to Abu Dhabi and let’s see what will happen.”
Despite rumoured interest from Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham, Kacou was quick to reveal that no other clubs had submitted a bid for Bony, despite him being the Premier League’s top scorer in the calender year of 2014, with 20.
“Talks are going on and we are waiting but I really hope things will happen soon,” Kacou added.
Bony added that he was aware of the negotiations for his sale but is concentrating on the Africa Cup of Nations: “It’s going on, the discussion is still on, so now I am going to join my national team so just focus on that now,” he said.
“It’s good to hear [of Manchester City’s interest] but football is going like that, but… every player wants to play Champions League.”
