Frustrated staff mulled around the terminal gates in club T-shirts with their luggage as they waited to see what will happen next.

The hitch came just as City announced a 20-man squad that was due to fly out today for their Asia tour.

City are scheduled to face West Ham in the Premier League Asia Trophy opener at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Center in Nanjing on Wednesday, with a 1.30pm kick-off (BST).

Second up for the Prem champs is the trophy final or play-off at Shanghai’s Hongkou Football Stadium next Saturday.

Pep Guardiola‘s men will then then head south to take on Hong Kong SAR Premier League champs Kitchee FC on Wednesday, July 24.
