City look to cut Champions League squad

Due to their Financial Fair Play fine from UEFA, City now have to reduce their Champions League squad to 21 players.

Manuel Pellgrini also needs to have five English trained players in his Champions League squad. This could lead Pellgrini to keep English defender Micah Richards and Belgian Dedryck Boyata for his squad.

It looks like Garica will be the next big money City player to leave this transfer window, with Joleon Lescott, Jack Rodwell and Gareth Barry having left the Etihad already this summer.
