According to the source, in addition to his £100,000-a-week salary, Bony will earn an additional £20,000 every time he steps onto the field of play. The 26-year-old striker secured the appearance fee bonus after being denied a higher salary by the champions.

City will also pay the Swans an additional £3m – taking the total value of the transfer to £28m – if Bony features in a certain percentage of matches and the club win every domestic honour plus the Champions League during his time at the club.

Bony, who has signed a 4½-year contract and will wear the No14 shirt, told the club’s official website: “It’s a great feeling for me, it’s a big honour to be here and it’s a great challenge.

“As a player it’s always good to be part of one of the biggest clubs in the world and it’s a good opportunity for me to be in that situation now – I’m really proud.

“I felt excited to wait for this moment and now it’s come, it’s fantastic. I think it’s a great decision for me – Manchester City is in the Champions League.

“You remember at the end of last season I said that if I want to move it will be to a team in the competition because it’s a great tournament that I really want to play in and one that I want to win.

“It’s a motivation for me to give my maximum to be in that place. City is a big club with great players with a lot of experience; I believe we can do it.”
