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.
