Manchester City are facing huge losses on their original spending spree.

The Sunday Mirror says Roque Santa Cruz and Emmanuel Adebayor could leave on free transfers.

Kolo Toure, a £16m buy from Arsenal, can go for £5m. And £16m Nigel de Jong will leave for free when his contract runs out next year. Robinho, a £32m marquee signing who ­arrived when the Abu Dhabi United Group took over, was sold to AC Milan for £15m.

Craig Bellamy joined ­Liverpool on a free after costing £14m, while £12m Wayne Bridge will have his £90,000-a-week pay subsidised while on loan at Brighton.

Keeper Shay Given joined Aston Villa for half of the £6m he cost from Newcastle.

But Jerome Boateng was sold for a profit. He cost £10.5m from Hamburg but moved to Bayern Munich for £12.4m.
