Wilfried Bony dismisses transfer talk: 'happy at Man City’

Wilfried Bony dismisses transfer talk: 'happy at Man City’

United Kingdom

Ivory Coast international striker Wilfried Bony says there is no truth in the rumours he wants to leave Manchester City.

He has recently been linked with Swansea, the club he left to sign for City last January.

The 27-year-old Ivory Coast striker made the move from Swansea City to the Sky Blues 12 months ago but has struggled for regular game time under Manuel Pellegrini.

Bony questioned manager Manuel Pellegrini’s decision to drop him in December and has since been playing second fiddle to Sergio Aguero.

“I’m happy at the club, all this speculation is not true,” Bony told BBC Sport.

“I have a contract so I’m happy and I think I’m at one of the top clubs in the United Kingdom.”

Bony also insisted he has no regrets over his decision to join Manchester City and has dismissed suggestions he is considering a move away from the Etihad Stadium.

“I have no regrets about joining Man City.”

“We play in the Champions League and we’re one of the top clubs in the world. I’m happy here and I can just say I’m blessed.”

He has scored eight goals in 23 games for the club this season in all competitions for City and has a contract until June 2019.

One other player who is “likely to listen to any offers” to leave Manchester City in the summer, is their talisman Yaya Toure.

Toure’s agent has claimed Pep Guardiola is over-rated as a manager and admitted his concern would be to get rid of the 32-year-old should he take over at Manchester City.

The Bayern Munich boss, who is favourite to take over from Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season after revealing he wants to work in the Premier League, sold Toure when the pair were at Barcelona.
