MANCHESTER City chief executive Ferran Soriano has revealed ‘new players are coming’ — and has confirmed that Joleon Lescott will be leaving the club.
Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna has been linked with a free transfer to the Etihad, while Porto duo Eliaquim Mangala and Fernando are also wanted by City.
“The planning has been done already,” said Soriano.”
Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta plans to hold talks with the club in the summer over his future.
Arteta, 32, has just one more season to run on his deal at the Emirates and Arsenal generally only offer 12-month extensions to players over the age of 30.
Stoke City defender Andy Wilkinson has agreed a new 12-month contract.
Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor plans to still be at White Hart Lane next season.
