City were handed a heft fined and were told that they had to limit their Champions League squad next season after failing to comply with UEFA financial fair play rules.
FFP also dictates that the squad must have a certain number of homegrown players, however City are still happy to see the back of three of theirs.
Micah Richard, Jack Rodwell and Scott Sinclair have all been told that they can find new clubs this summer and Gareth Barry is set to leave when his contract expires next month as Pellegrini looks set to revamp his title winning squad.
Richards has been injured for the majority of the season and didn’t receive a Premier League winners medal, with Rodwell equally unlucky with injury but also not selected when fit.
Sinclair has been on loan at West Brom where he has hardly had a kick and Barry is set to sign permanently for Everton after impressing on loan.
