Scott Sinclair

It is fair to say Scott Sinclair’s move to Manchester City has not worked out. Roberto Mancini raised a few eyebrows when he signed the Swansea City winger after winning the Premier League title, but the 24-year-old has struggled since moving to The Etihad. Sinclair has made only three starts for City, and with the arrivals of Fernandinho and Jesús Navas, his chances of first-team action now look slimmer than ever.

Carlos Tévez

Carlos Tévez has been a reported target for Liverpool should Luis Suarez move on from Anfield this summer, while Juventus, who look set to miss out on Arsenal-bound Gonzalo Higuain, have also been linked with a bid. Stories suggested that the Reds were looking to the Argentina striker to fill the void left by the Uruguayan if he leaves for Real Madrid.

Edin Dzeko

Edin Dzeko has been linked with a move away from The Etihad, with Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea speculated to be interested in the tall front-man. Dzeko was said to be unhappy about having to play many games as a substitute last season, despite a healthy goal return of 14 goals. The Bosnia-Herzegovina international joined in a £27m deal in 2011, but Dortmund won’t be willing to pay that fee to lure the striker back to Germany.

Aleksandar Kolarov

Aleksandar Kolarov is another whose future has been the subject of speculation, with the Serbian full-back said to be considering his options at the club. Reports last month suggested that the defender could be heading for the exit door at City after becoming disgruntled at the lack of playing time.

Maicon

Brazilian right-back Maicon could be on his way from City following the arrival of new manager Manuel Pellegrini. The 31-year-old was a Roberto Mancini signing but played just 75 minutes in the Premier League all season and has never been anything other than a squad player at the club.
