Star trio set to depart Eastlands...
Roberto Mancini seems to have given the all-clear for a trio of star names to leave Manchester City.

Brazilian forward Robinho, goalkeeper Shay Given and target man Roque Santa Cruz have all been heavuly linked with moves away from Eastlands and now Mancini seems resigned to the fact they will leave.

Joe Hart has secured the number one goalkeeping slot at City, meaning that Given is considering his future, with Arsenal and Fulham both reported as potential destinations.

Robinho has been linked with Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Schalke 04, whilst Santa Cruz could link up with former City gaffer Mark Hughes at Fulham.

But his future will be sorted out in the next "five or six days", according to Mancini.

"If Robinho, Shay or Roque want to stay, I'm happy because they are fantastic players, but it is most important the players are happy," the Italian explained, speaking to The Times.
