Manchester City midfielder David Silva wants to be paid more than £200,000 a week.
According to DailyMail, the World Cup and European Championship winner is asking to be paid on par with club's top earners like Yaya Toure and Carlos Tevez.
The 26 year old has two years to run on his £130,000-a-week deal signed two years ago.
It is no secret that Silva has been a key player to Roberton Mancini and City want to tie down the Spanaird to a new long term deal. Thus City could go against their policy of not negetiating contracts during the season to reach an agreement with him.
Manchester City will travel to Anfield for Liverpool on this Sunday Premier League clash.
