Gossip: Manchester City New year time for a new squad

Manchester City are set to have big sales in the next transfer window and looking to off  load around six of their present squad  .

Names which have been dropped into the mix are Emmanuel Adebayor, Roque Santa Cruz, Jo, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Wayne Bridge and Shay Given.

With all of the mentioned players already been reported in the news as been unsettled at the club the news will come as no surprise to any of the named, many believed to be excited about being given the chance to move away from the club to save their careers.

News that these names are now available for offers will alert a number of interested clubs from across the globe and the club have revealed that they are prepared to take a loss on each player other than Shay Given who will be sold for no less than the £7million paid for the goalkeeper.

The revelation comes as manager Roberto Mancini met with both the clubs chairman and chief executive before the pair travelled to Abu Dhabi to outline the managers plan of a restructure of the squad.

Reports lead us to believe that owner Sheikh Mansour has sanctioned for the players to be sold off and would like to make just £50million back from the sales in order to increase the spending that Mancini would have available but it seems that they are also willing to lose £50million on the group of players who were bought by former manager Mark Hughes for a total of £87.5million.

The biggest price reduction that will be brought into force the moment that the January transfer window opens for business will be that of striker Roque Santa Cruz who cost the club £18million but will be available for as little as £4million.

AC Milan could well be interested in the announced sale too, currently looking for a striker after losing their veteran striker Filippo Inzaghi to injury for the remainder of the season, they are believed to be interested in Emmanuel Adebayor.

The striker was bought by the club for £24million when he was signed from Premier League side Arsenal but has failed to impress Mancini and so will be up for grabs for £12million, half the price that the club paid.

The real question is who will city bring in?
