Pep Guardiola has not yet arrived at Manchester City, but he has reportedly already identified seven stars, including two Africans, he wants to sell when he steps into the hot seat at the Etihad.

According to German newspaper Bild, the current Bayern Munich boss will make some drastic changes to City's squad when he starts his reign.

It has been suggested that the Spaniard will axe goalkeeper Joe Hart as he is keen to bring in Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who is more comfortable with starting the play from the back.

Martin Demichelis and Eliaquim Mangala are reportedly not making the cut in defence, and Aymeric Laporte and Marquinhos have been linked as possible replacements.

It has long been mooted that Guardiola and Yaya Toure are not keen on a reunion after their tense relationship during their time together at FC Barcelona. Ilkay Gundogan has been named as a potential successor to the Ivory Coast midfielder.

Bild also believe that Samir Nasri and Fernandinho are on Pep's exit list, while there will be no place for striker Wilfried Bony as well.
