Mancini keen on a huge clear out at the Ethiad come this May.
As many as 11 first-team players could be set to leave Premier League champions Manchester City come the end of the season, says the Guardian.
Head coach Roberto Mancini and his players have endured a disappointing campaign to date, with the club a massive 12 points behind arch-rivals Manchester United in the race to retain their top-flight crown, while City also suffered humiliation in the Champions League group stage for the second year running, finishing bottom of their standings.
And the Italian is desperate for the same situation not to occur again next season, which means recruiting the right players this summer, something which clearly did not happen last year, as well as letting go of a certain number of individuals to help clear space in the squad and off the wage bill.
Those facing an uncertain future include the likes of Carlos Tevez, Gareth Barry, Edin Dzeko and Samir Nasri.
Mancini will hope that he does not join them out the Etihad Stadium exit door, with only the FA Cup left for Manchester City to win this season.
