Swansea ready to write off £16million to take Wilfried Bony back from Manchester City this summer

The Ivorian has failed to fire since moving to the Etihad in January 2015 and is wanted to lead Francesco Guidolin's attack next season

Fall guy: Bony has struggled at the Etihad since joining from the Swans

Swansea are ready to write off the outstanding £16million balance on Wilfried Bony’s £28million transfer to Manchester City to take the striker back this summer.

The 28-year-old has failed to establish himself in the north-west since his move to the Etihad in January 2015 and incoming City boss Pep Guardiola has made it clear the Ivorian does not feature in his plans.

He will be allowed to leave the club with Swansea keen to take him back and the player open to the idea of returning to the Liberty Stadium.

Bony made a name for himself in the Premier League after moving to south Wales from Vitesse Arnhem in Holland in 2013.

But in 18 months in Manchester he managed just 10 goals, a contribution which will have cost City £12million.
