Gareth Barry must accept a pay-cut to stay with Manchester City.

The Sun says Barry, a £12million buy from Aston Villa in 2010, picks up around £120,000 a week.

But City are in the process of driving down salaries, with more emphasis on bonuses.

Barry will be offered a basic wage of £70,000 a week.

He is reportedly happy at the club and success on the pitch would help boost his earnings.
