With a little over a month left of the transfer window Roberto Mancini's squad is beginning to take shape however it is clear some big names aren't going to be on the 25 man squad when it has to be registered. This is based on the feeling Carlos Tevez will leave, my best guess is.
Joe Hart, Stuart Taylor, Gunnar Nielsen.
Micah Richards, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Kolo Toure, Joleon Lescott, Aleksandar Kolarov, Gaël Clichy
Nigel De Jong, Gareth Barry, James Milner, Yaya Toure, David Silva, Adam Johnson, Shaun Wright Phillips, Vladimir Weiss
Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero
True that is only 20 and quite possibly leaves space for some of the "outcasts" like Nedum Onuoha or Craig Bellamy to make the cut. It also shows some great transfer policy by the club as the likes of Mario Balotelli Stefan Savic etc.. are Under 21's and therefore free to be picked regardless.
It also leaves space for any other deals the club has in the pipeline! Making this has made me realise one thing. I am glad I am not a manager!
