Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly ready to let as many as ten first-team players at the end of this season as he plans a major revamp of his squad.
The Spanish tactician has endured a tough start at the Etihad Stadium as he adjusts to life in the Premier League, but he has also inherited an ageing and over-the-hill squad from previous boss Manuel Pellegrini.
City are already lining up some summer transfer targets, with big names like Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in Guardiola’s sights.
Guardiola will be understandably keen to make some changes.
However, according to The Times, there could also be a long list of players on their way out, with Samir Nasri, Joe Hart, Eliaquim Mangala and Wilfried Bony not in Guardiola’s plans and set to be sold.
