de­par­tures of a host of top stars.

Car­los Tevez and Joleon Lescott will be moved on as they have a year left on their deals and City will cash in now rather than of­fer new terms.

And Edin Dzeko, Kolo Toure, Alek­sander Ko­larov and flops Wayne Bridge and Roque Santa Cruz could all be forced off the wage bill.

Mancini has al­ready sold Mario Balotelli to Mi­lan.


And although that has left him with only three se­nior strik­ers, he sees the open­ings it might give him in the sum­mer.

Fal­cao has been tracked by Chelsea, but Mancini is con­fi­dent he can snap up the free-scor­ing Colom­bian while he has also been track­ing Uruguay hit­man Ca­vani for al­most two years.

Mancini is also des­per­ate to bring in a top qual­ity cen­tre-half to part­ner Vin­cent Kom­pany with Lescott and Toure mov­ing on.
