Report: Man City Planning Summer Clear Out
Guardian, March 14th, 2013 4:42PM

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester City is understood to be contemplating a summer clear-out of several players at the end of this season, The Guardian reports. Carlos Tevez, Samir Nasri, Gareth Barry and Edin Dzeko are among 11 players whose futures are in doubt as Coach Roberto Mancini plans to take a big axe to his underachieving squad.

According to the report, the Italian tactician believes the club’s inability to recruit the players he identified towards the end of last season proved to be a major factor in City’s disappointing season. While Mancini wanted the likes of Robin van Persie, Eden Hazard, Daniele De Rossi, Javi Martinez and Daniel Agger, he had to settle for Jack Rodwell, Javi Garcia, Matjia Nastasic, Scott Sinclair and Maicon.

Barry is understood to have told reporters that Mancini, CEO Ferran Soriano and director Txiki Begiristain are going to scrutinize “the players they want to go with” in the future. He, Tevez and Joleon Lescott all have one year remaining on their contracts, while Kolo Toure, Roque Santa Cruz and Wayne Bridge are all out of contract and certain to leave.
