Manchester City have reportedly accepted that they risk losing some key players at the end of the season if their Champions League ban is upheld.
The English champions were rocked last week when they were informed by UEFA that they have been banned from European competitions for two seasons due to breaching financial fair play rules.
The future of boss Pep Guardiola has been called into question, while a number of first-team stars - including Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling - have been tipped to find new clubs should City fail with their appeal.
According to The Telegraph, the Citizens are bracing themselves for continued speculation between now and the summer but are calm about what the future holds.
City return to Premier League action on Wednesday with a rearranged Premier League clash against West Ham United.
