EPL Transfers: Manchester City plan massive clear-out

Posted By:

Manchester, Feb 3: Manchester City are ready to offload their stars during the summer and rebuild their team, according to a report in MirrorFootball.

Carlos Tevez, Edin Dzeko, Samir Nasri, Joleon Lescott, Scott Sinclair, Aleksandar Kolarov and Maicon are some of the names ready to be shown the Etihad exit door.

Tevez, 29, is yet to agree to sign a new deal with the defending champions as he eyes a return to Argentina while Juventus and AC Milan have shown interest. Tevez's current deal with the club ends in 12 months and City are ready to listen to offers.

Manchester City plan massive clear-out

Dzeko has been in and out of the first team due to competition from Tevez and Sergio Aguero. Arsenal and Juventus were keen on buying the big Bosnian but Roberto Mancini made it clear that he wants the striker to stay.

Joleon Lescott enters the final 12 months of his contract but City are not willing to offer a new deal. Lescott, 30, who was linked with a return to Everton, has lost his place in the first-team to youngster Matija Nastasic. Lescott has been part of the first-team as captain Vincent Kompany is sidelined due to injury.

Kolarov, Maicon and Sinclair have been bit-part players for City through this season. The champions will recoup some cash in from transfer deals and players high wages.

City are not planning to offer new contracts to Kolo Toure and keeper Richard Wright which will save them nearly £12million in wages. City have already made £20 million from the sale of Mario Balotelli to AC Milan last week, savin £170,000-a-week in wages.

Mancini and Co have been quiet during the recent January transfer window and have made Luis Suarez their No. 1 target when the summer transfer market reopens.
