Manchester City are reportedly keen on offering their Ivorian stalwart Yaya Toure a new deal, but only under one condition.
According to the Daily Star, the 33-year-old will have to take a 50% pay cut if he would like to continue his career at the Etihad next season.
The report suggested that the former Ivory Coast international could also be tempted by a mega-money move to China, but the player apparently wants to stay in England.
Toure currently earns about £230 000 (R4 million) a week at the Citizens, but the club is only willing to offer him a new deal worth £115 000 (R2 million) a week.
The midfielder has, on numerous occasions, said he is committed to the Manchester club and would like to stay for a few more seasons if possible.
The former FC Barcelona star fought hard to regain his place in Pep Guardiola's squad this season, and his good form has even sparked new Ivory Coast manager Marc Wilmots to ask him to come out of international retirement.
Toure has insisted he is not interested in playing for his national team again, however, as he hopes to prolong his club career in Manchester.
"No, no. I don't change my mind now," he was quoted as saying.
The Ivorian has made 28 appearances in all competitions for his English side this season, scoring six goals.
