GAEL CLICHY has confirmed he will leave Manchester City in the summer – and could spark a summer exodus.
Pep Guardiola is expected to release a number of his first team squad as part of a summer overhaul to get his team back challenging for the Premier League.
The French defender’s contract expires in July and he revealed in a Q&A that he will not be signing a new deal.

Clichy said: “It’s hard. I’m not sure whether or not Joe will be here next season, and I won’t be here next season.”
The former Arsenal right-back was talking at an exclusive screening of a documentary about City’s title win back in 2012 called 93:20.
As well as Clichy, Bacary Sagna, Willy Caballero, Jesus Navas, Yaya Toure and Tosin Adarabioyo could all leave this summer.
