Manchester City have "too many players" and could allow John Guidetti and Scott Sinclair to leave before the end of the transfer window, according to Manuel Pellegrini.

Manager Pellegrini admitted he must trim his squad before adding any further recruits, as City fight to comply with Financial Fair Play constraints.

Porto capture Eliaquim Mangala could be City's final summer signing unless the club can offload Sinclair and Guidetti, Pellegrini conceded.

"It's not finished, until the last day we can do different things," said Pellegrini at the Premier League launch.

"But if you ask me at this moment if I am happy with the squad, yes I am very happy with my squad.

"We had a lot of problems also with Financial Fair Play with the restriction of the amount of players we can put in our squad.

"So maybe I don't think that we are going to sign another player because we cannot do it.

"We have maybe too many players in the squad at this moment, players that need to play, that's very important, especially for young players.

"John Guidetti or maybe Scott Sinclair, they may need to play in a different team, so we'll see from now until the end of the transfer window what happens with our squad.

"But at this moment, yes we have too many players."
