Pep set to reshape City squad

Pep Guardiola could reportedly wield the axe on as many as 13 players in a cull of the Manchester City squad this summer.

The Etihad Stadium boss is determined to fashion the team in his own image following the club's disappointing Champions League exit to Monaco on Wednesday night.

City have a number of players who are out of contract at the end of the season and are unlikely to be handed new deals.

Yaya Toure, Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and Jesus Navas are all set to have time called, while the Citizens will also be looking to collect fees for unwanted stars Joe Hart, Eliaquim Mangala, Samir Nasri and Wilfried Bony.

And there are now serious questions marks hanging over flop keeper Claudio Bravo and the future of £70m-rated star striker Sergio Aguero, who continues to be linked with a move away to Real Madrid.

It's understood Guardiola will be handed a transfer kitty of around £200m in the summer and is already well on his way to identifying many of the replacements he wants.
