Dominik Smolak looks at five Manchester City who could depart before the close of the summer transfer window...

Edin Dzeko

The 28-year-old striker has recently been linked up with Internazionale and Borussia Dortmund. The best scorer of the national team of Bosnia & Herzegovina ever has been a part of the Citizens since 2011 and an impressive run for the Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

Sergio Aguero scored more goals than Dzeko this season and he could easily be replaced soon in the starting eleven.

Martin Demichelis

The Argentinian veteran will not participate in the World Cup, but has still got a lot to offer in club football. Manuel Pellegrini insisted on Demichelis' transfer because they have already once been a part of the same team - Malaga. Despite of not being among the best central defenders in the club, he took part in most of the Premier League matches this season.

Napoli are most likely to ensure the signature of the 33-year-old for the next season in hopes of winning Scudetto. 

Micah Richards

The right-back has been a part of lots of rumours, but the most probable two would be either Italian side AC Milan or Arsenal. He was one of the England's youngest representatives, making a debut at the age of 18.

Bacary Sagna is on the way out of the Emirates, so a move would be suitable for Richards who has becoming something of a deputy to Pablo Zabaleta at the Etihad Stadium.

Matija Nastasic

A move to Galatasaray and a return to his old manager Roberto Mancini is very possible, because of infrequent performances at the current club. This is the only club that Nastasic has been linked with.

Mancini bought the young Serbian to Manchester City, and Nastasic established himself as a starting centre-back under his former manager.

Joleon Lescott

Another central-back and a part-time representative of the Three Lions is also favoured for a Super Lig move. Besiktas have been keen on bringing the 31-year-old to their home ground for two weeks now.

The defender hasn't left England in his entire career, playing for Wolverhampton, Everton and Manchester City where he is today. As well as Nastasic, the Englishman hasn't been given a chance and could very soon move out of Manchester.
