The latest on those who could leave the Etihad this summer...

CONFIRMED: Patrick Roberts - Norwich have signed Manchester City winger Roberts on a season-long loan deal.

Leroy Sane - The winger would be a "good fit" at Bayern Munich, according to his Germany team-mate Joshua Kimmich. "I would like to have Leroy at Bayern, that would send the right message," the right-back told Bild. "He's a player who would be a good fit at Bayern. I think he's a very good player. He has great potential, but was not allowed to play at City last season, which I cannot understand. But it is his decision and the task of those responsible to convince him. If I was in the club's position, I would certainly buy him."

Meanwhile, the Guardian have reported that City have turned down an offer of €80m (£70.7m) for Sane from Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich club president Uli Hoeness previously confirmed City's Sane is a player the German champions are interested in signing.
