Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola is ready for a squad overhaul at the end of the season after watching his side falter in their title battle with Liverpool.
According to the Daily Mirror, up to seven players could be saying goodbye to the Etihad after their disappointing league season, with another two out of contract.
The respective future's of Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Joao Cancelo, Nicolas Otamendi, Angelino, Benjamin Mendy and John Stones are all up for consideration.
All of them cost a combined £250m and are likely to leave for considerably less, with Claudio Bravo and David Silva also allowed to leave for free.
Here is what Guardiola said: “The judgement on the season will be made at the end of the season.
“Obviously it is only a nice season when you win the biggest titles, so I don't know.
“I am proud of my team. We won the first title in the summertime with the Community Shield and we are in the Carabao Cup final against Aston Villa.
“But winning the league isn't far away now for Liverpool. They would be champions in Timbuktu, in Australia and everywhere else – and we are not even close.
“We are in a good position to qualify for the Champions League, but we play the kings of the championship in Real Madrid, the team with 13 trophies.
“So ask me my opinion of the season at the end and I will tell you.
“We will, of course, not just be judged on the way we play but the titles we win.”
