Up to 9 players facing the exit door at Man City in the summer

Carlos Tevez heads the list of names rumored to be heading out of the Etihad in the summer.

The Mirror understands that Roberto Mancini is keen to have a massive clear-out at Manchester City and Tevez will be allowed to leave with the striker expressing his reluctance to sign a new deal.

Other names heading out of the exit door include Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko, Joleon Lescott, Scott Sinclair, Aleksander Kolarov and Maicon. Gareth Barry and James Milner might also have to worry about their place in the squad.

Why City would want to offload so many players in one go is a mystery, they cannot buy in the manner they have previously due to Uefa fair play rules and such a high turn over of players makes it very difficult to build a stabilised team, as QPR are proving.

It is probably more likely that Mancini himself will be heading towards the exit door, it is hard to see the club heirachy authorising such a mass clear and may find it far simpler just to offload the manager.

Time will tell how close to the truth this Daily Mirror article is.
