Premier League champions Manchester City are set to raise more than £200 million through player sales this year, according to The Telegraph.

After winning the Premier League last season and reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League, Manchester City Pep Guardiola is set to shake up the squad in the pursuit of more silverware.

Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus looks set to leave the Blues this summer following the acquisitions of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez.

Premier League sides Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing the Brazilian and Manchester City could raise up to £50million from his sale.

Raheem Sterling is another potential departure from the Etihad this summer. The England international has just one year left on his contract and is attracting interest from Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Sterling enjoyed a mixed season, at times struggling to break into Pep Guardiola’s starting XI and as such could seek an opportunity elsewhere. He is valued at around £60million by Manchester City.

While money has been made elsewhere through the sale of Ferran Torres to Barcelona in January with his fee potentially rising to £55m. 

Manchester City right-back Pedro Porro has already joined Sporting Lisbon for £7million after spending the past two seasons on loan at the Portuguese club.

Premier League side Southampton are hoping to sign highly rated young Ireland goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu and he is valued at around £15million by Manchester City.

Venezuela midfielder Yangel Herrera and Morgan Rogers, an England U20 player could together fetch around £20million for the club.

Both players spent last season on loan away from the club, at Espanyol and Bournemouth, respectively. 

Should all these players depart, Manchester City would bring in around £207million through player sales.

City could even raise more than £207million in player sales should Oleksandr Zinchenko, Nathan Ake or Ilkay Gundogan leave the club this summer.

Gundogan has 12 months left on his contract and is considering his future at the club while Zinchenko has been linked with Arsenal and West Ham. Newcastle United are interested in signing £50million Ake.

With the revenue raised from these sales, City are expected to pursue a move for the £60million rated Leeds midfielder, Kalvin Phillips, as a replacement for the departed Fernandinho.

The Blues are also interested in Marc Cucurella, although Brighton are thought to want around £50m for the left back.
