Manchester City striker linked with China switch

Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony is being linked with a move to the mega rich Chinese Super League.

The Ivorian has had a disastrous time at the Etihad since his £28m switch from Swansea City back in 2015, and has faired no better during his season long loan at Stoke City last season.

He rose to prominence firstly at Vitesse Arnhem in the Eredivisie, and again at Swansea City, where he scored 35 goals in 70 appearances for the Welsh club.

However following his troubles, the Independent claim that Pep Guardiola wants to offload the striker, and try to recoup around half of the original outlay for the striker.

Ligue 1 club Lille have been linked with the striker this summer, but now there is interest from several clubs in the Chinese Super League. There has also been interest from a number of Premier League clubs, but only as an alternative for more primary targets, meaning he is more likely to move abroad and end his time playing in England.
