Bony is looking to win a cup in his career – and believes he can do it at the Etihad Stadium.
Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony is edging ever closer to a big money move to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City, with the Sun reporting that the Ivorian international is keen on the move to the Etihad Stadium because he wants to ensure that he is able to win some trophies during his career.
City are expected to have to pay a mammoth fee in the region of £30 million for Bony, but the former Vitesse Arnhem star was the top Premier League scorer in 2014 and is likely to offer a level of physicality and power that is not currently present in the options available to Manuel Pellegrini in attack.
Bony has enjoyed a hugely successful spell at the Liberty Stadium since joining Swansea from Eredivisie outfit Vitesse, but he missed out on their League Cup triumph under Michael Laudrup, joining the club a few months later, and was also not close to silverware during his time in Arnhem.
That is something that Bony is looking to change once he does move to the Etihad Stadium, with City almost guaranteed to be challenging for trophies each season, a prospect that the striker is excited about:
“I really want to win something in my career. That is what I’m working for.”
