SWANSEA City are set to bank close to £6 million from the sale of Scott Sinclair to Manchester City.
Sinclair is on the brink of a move to the Etihad Stadium — which could be completed tomorrow — for a fee expected to be in the region of £6.5 million.
Swansea will not get all the cash because of a sell-on clause in the deal which brought the winger to Wales from Chelsea two years ago.
But it is thought that clause only entitles Chelsea to around 10 per cent of any profit made by Swansea on a player who cost them £1.5 million.
Michael Laudrup suggested over the weekend that he didn't know whether Sinclair will still be a Swansea player when the transfer window closes on Friday.
But, as has been the case for some time, it seems certain that the former Chelsea man will say his goodbyes this week.
Sinclair has told Swansea he will not sign a new contract and has only 12 months to run on his current deal.
He was left out of Saturday's 3-0 win over West Ham after a discussion with his manager.
"In the last three or four days there have been a lot of things going on around Scott," Laudrup explained.
"I spoke to him on Friday and we both agreed that it was best for everybody that he didn't participate in this game.
"Then we will see what happens this week. If he stays then he will be back in the squad next Saturday.
"Will he still be here? I really don't know. It has nothing to do with me whether he will be here — you need to talk to Scott or to the chairman."
Swansea remain optimistic about their chances of landing Valencia winger Pablo Hernandez before the transfer deadline.
