Manchester City are ready to part with 13 players this summer after their Champions League flop at the hands of Monaco.
City owner Sheikh Mansour will back Pep Guardiola with cash to bolster the defensive and attacking options at his disposal.
With City having to create space for the potential arrivals, the futures of Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta are under threat.
Unwanted quartet Joe Hart, Eliaquim Mangala, Samir Nasri and Wilfried Bony – all currently out on loan – are also expected to depart permanently.
Uncertainty hangs over captain Vincent Kompany, Fernando, Nolito, Jesus Navas, Fabian Delph and Claudio Bravo, although the MEN claim they have until the end of the season to prove their worth to Guardiola.
