Carrington will be a quiet place for the next few days, as eleven first team players have joined up with their national sides for the midweek friendly fixtures.
City’s furthest traveller this week is David Silva, the only player heading outside Europe, who is part of the Spain squad to face Uruguay in Qatar.
Elsewhere, Yaya and Kolo Toure, along with Abdul Razak, are now on their way home from the Africa Cup of Nations after the Ivory Coast suffered a quarter final loss to Nigeria.
Two members of the Elite Development Squad also received call ups for international action. Eirik Johansen is off to Turkey with the Norwegian Under 21s, while Karim Rekik has been selected for the Netherlands Under 19 squad to face Scotland.
