Guardiola forecasts end to City spending spree

Why Manchester City are favorites to win the Premier League

Why Manchester City are favorites to win the Premier League

It's going to be tough for them. There´s a gulf between Albion and City. If the club decides [I am] not able, we are going to take a solution. We bought three and the market is so demanding not just for Manchester City. Perhaps we´ve got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way. Back in 1979, when we made the same step-up, we lost 4-0 at home to Arsenal.

City have spent around 200 million pounds ($259.46 million) to strengthen their squad in the close-season with other title contenders including Chelsea and Manchester United also spending heavily to bolster their teams. But then we won at Nottingham Forest (who were then European champions), gained some confidence, put some runs together, and finished well clear of the relegation zone.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we will not spend how we spent this season", Guardiola told reporters ahead of City's Premier League opener at Brighton on Saturday. In the last six or seven years Manchester City didn't buy full-backs.

City is much more equipped to launch a sustained title challenge, with Guardiola close to having his ideal squad.

"Going forward, I don´t think that there is anyone who can match us because we have so many attacking options and great players. But we try to win the game". Sooner or later it's going to finish.

"I would like in three or four passes to score a goal, but sometimes it's not possible and you have to move them [the opposition] a little bit more, and because our strikers are not Peter Crouch, our strikers are completely different, they are not strong in the air". "I like them as a club and I like Slaven Bilic so they will do better than they did last season". The first four, five, six games are so complicated, especially away.

A player with an exquisite first touch and eye for a pass, many feel he is tailor-made to excel under Guardiola's guidance, and City's open, attacking brand of football was a major reason he decided to make the move to the Etihad. When I am not playing or training, I watch football all the time. "I am pleased with the business City have done in the transfer window so far".

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed after last season".

Defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo have all arrived at the Etihad Stadium along with goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva to take City's expenditure to £217 million ($281 million, 238 million euros).
