Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says his squad is still three players short.
"We are working on new players that can arrive at Manchester City," said Pellegrini.
"We are not in a hurry to bring them now but we are clear that we need two or three more players. Maicon didn't come here to pre-season and he will not stay in the squad.
"It's difficult to say a date but before July finishes I think we will have more players."
