Chicharito Hernández, on loan from Manchester United, will leave Madrid in June, and that would leave Real Madrid's roster with no backup for Karim Benzema. Therefore, the most natural transfer rumor around the White House will be this backup striker, and the stream of names we will hear about will continue until Florentino Pérez cuts it.
One of the first men that have been claimed to be in Uncle Flo's wishlist is Wilfried Bony. The Ivorian striker is doing a great job this season at Swansea, having scored nine goals so far. According to Daily Mail (and later to Marca), Real Madrid have already got in contact with him and would be willing to pay €15 million to see him wearing the white T-shirt next season, something that Bony would agree to.
However, there's people out there with money as well...
We're told Swansea in advanced talks with Manchester City for Wilfried Bony. Deal yet to be agreed; valued around £30m. #SSNHQ— Bryan Swanson (@skysports_bryan) enero 6, 2015
While having Bony as an off-the-bench alternative would be a great upgrade for this team, we will have to wait a few days to determine the odds for this deal to come true. In any case, be certain that this will not the only name we will be hearing about in the following days (or months).
