Reports in the Sun explain that the contract offer involves a basic wage of around £70,000 per week with huge bonuses every time he plays. It could see him double his money to around £130,000 per week — but that would not be guaranteed.
The 26-year-old is yet to be convinced, and offered little in his final interview before departing for the Africa Cup of Nations. He said: “The discussions are going on. At the moment, there’s nothing. No medical. We don’t know what will happen.
Bony is concerned about how often he will start once City boss Manuel Pellegrini has hotshot Sergio Aguero back from a knee injury. Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic are also vying for starting slots — although one may be forced out should Bony sign.
