#3 Wilfried Bony

Manchester City v West Bromwich Albion - Premier League
Manchester City v West Bromwich Albion - Premier League

Wilfried Bony joined Manchester City in 2015 for 28 million pounds from Swansea, and it proved to be a wasteful signing for the Manchester club. That summer, City had signed Sterling and De Bruyne who were soon to become invaluable assets to the Guardiola project, but Bony's signing in January didn't really work out.

After scoring 34 goals in a season and a half at Swansea, the Ivorian was one of Europe's most in demand strikers and City took a chance and snapped him up. He was brought in as a backup to Sergio Aguero and no one really expected big things of him at City.

His career never took off in Manchester as Manuel Pellegrini, the manager at the time, gave him only two starts in the season that he joined. Pellegrini never really favored Bony when he returned from the African Cup Of Nations in February 2015. Bony eventually left City in 2017, ending his forgettable time in the blue half of Manchester.
