Not only is Manuel Pellegrini’s managerial position under-threat, but as many as six first-team regulars could be booted out of Manchester City, with the owners in an unforgiving mood, if they exit the Champions League.

The Daily Express report that defeat to Barcelona at the Camp Nou could mark the end of a number of high-profile careers at the Etihad Stadium.

A major squad rebuild is in the pipe line – with Nasri, Yaya Toure, Edin Dzeko, Aleksander Kolarov, Fernandinho and Stevan Jovetic all on the brink of a brutal axing.

The Premier League champions have suffered a debilitating season, as they face ending the campaign without silverware, in what would be a considerable step backwards in the eyes of the Abu Dhabi owners.

The club are also concerned that if they continue to falter in the Champions League, that world-class stars Sergio Aguero and David Silva could become frustrated with their lack of European success, and search for a way out.
