Defenders Matija Nastasic and Micah Richards, midfielder Scott Sinclair and striker John Guidetti look to be heading out of Manchester City.
While the departures of Richards, Sinclair and Guidetti are to be expected given their injuries / lack of impact over the past two seasons, the decision to allow Nastasic to leave is slightly surprising. The Serbian defender was first choice partner to Vincent Kompany for much of last season before injury let in Martin Demichelis and with Joleon Lescott leaving he could still have the chance to play an important squad role, despite Eliaquim Mangala's arrival. However, Manuel Pellegrini has stated he needs to trim his squad and wants to give Nastasic the chance to play football. "He is an important player, but he has offers and I think the best thing for him is to play. We will see what happens, but we have until the end of August to see what kind of offers we get."
