Man City Transfer News: 4 Out, 5 In?

Big changes could be expected at Manchester City following their latest UEFA Champions League heartbreak, with four first-team players tipped to be shipped out and up to five stars potentially set to be brought in.

Click through the gallery above to see some potential outgoings and incomings at City in the coming transfer window, according to several reports.

Although the Premier League leaders remain on course to defend their domestic crown, failing to cement a place in the final of Europe's biggest competition is likely to be met with consequences.

Pep Guardiola is known to be a manager who values the impact a new arrival could have and the importance of fresh faces adding competition for places, despite this having not yet worked with Jack Grealish, who became the club's most expensive signing in history last year.

It is likely the ex-Barcelona and Bayern Munich tactician will look to bring in a few players for his project in England, particularly following the upset Real Madrid caused the EPL champions at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Their 3-1 defeat on the night will have hurt Guardiola, but could be the source of inspiration for the coach, who might feel desperate to make personnel tweaks ahead of the 2022/23 campaign to give himself and his squad a good chance of going all the way in Europe next season.

Here are nine players who are definitely leaving their current clubs at the end of the season: 

City's reported interest in Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland and apparent agreement with the Norway international could spark the change Guardiola will be looking for, considering the 21-year-old's growing status as one of the best young forwards in world football.

Haaland has scored 85 goals in 87 appearances for BVB since his arrival in 2020, and is said to have chosen City as his next destination, seemingly ending Real Madrid's hopes of bringing him to Spain to potentially partner Kylian Mbappe in the near future.

Guardiola's squad will be further bolstered by the signing of Argentina international Julian Alvarez, whose transfer from River Plate was already announced in the January window.

This could see the league leaders move the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling on at the end of the campaign, with both players heavily linked with departures. While Arsenal are reportedly monitoring Jesus, AC Milan are the latest team to be linked with Sterling.

Pep: It Is Normal

Fernandinho, meanwhile, has confirmed he will be leaving City when his contract expires in June. Benjamin Mendy could also officially be headed for the exit door amid the charges of alleged sexual assault he is facing.
