A round up of news stories this morning about Manchester City.

The Independent claims Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini faces the sack at the end of this season.

City could pull the trigger on the Chilean if he fails to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League and fails to retain the Premier League title.

City and Southampton are the only sides to have got close to Chelsea so far this season.

The Times claims Manchester City could sell midfielder Yaya Toure next summer.

The national newspaper suggests that City could be open to doing business for the player if the right offer comes in for him.

Everton’s Ross Barkley is cited as a player who could come the other way.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is backing the side in the Champions League.

The Belgian said earlier this week, that it’s his job to carrying on believing when everyone else stops.

“There are internationals between now and our next game in the Champions League. That gives us some time to clear our heads, come back, and see how much we still have to play for. That is what we have to look at,” said the defender.
