Chelsea Looking To Hijack Man City’s £30m Deal, Deal Already Agreed

With the race for the Premier League title hitting up, clubs see the January transfer window as a big opportunity to reinforce their teams and add a couple of players that could help them achieve their minimum target. Jose Mourinho is one not to let big opportunities go past him as report has emerged of his interest in signing Ivory Coast and Swansea striker Wilfried Bony. This is despite reports of Bony having already agreed a deal to sign for Manchester City.

Bony, who is on the verge of completing a £30 million move to the Etihad Stadium, is a player much in demand. Signing him would be a big boost in our bid to win the EPL title this season. Chelsea have been ruthless in this season’s campaign so far, scoring goals as if they are going out of fashion; but nothing is decided yet until May.

We need to boost our attack line with a signing of Bony’s calibre if we hope to keep players like Drogba and Costa fresh and ready for the challenges ahead. Bony has demonstrated over the past few months his capacity to punish goalkeepers and score goals regardless of the opposition his team is playing against. Confirming City’s interest in the Ivory Coast international, Gary Monk, the Swansea manager had this to say:

“Wilfried could well be the difference in the title race, that’s what City see in him,” he said.

“I can see why their interest is there, he gets you goals. He can improve on certain things but the bottom line is he is a goalscorer and it’s obviously what they want him for and that can be key,” Monk said in the Express.

However, there seems to be a slight hiccup in terms of agreement between City and the Swans in terms of negotiations, which could give us a glimmer of hope in terms of high jacking the deal.

“If they haven’t quite met the valuation, and that’s what the situation must be otherwise I am sure the deal would have been done, Huw will wait for it and quite rightly so” said Monk.

Chelsea have a record of high jacking players as with Willian and Mohammed Salah; and that of Bony won’t come as a surprise to transfer watchers all over the world.
