Pep Guardiola forecasts end to Manchester City spending spree

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud

"We are going to see at the end of the season what happens", he indicated.

Mohamed Diame turned his back on the Premier League a year ago.

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

Frustrated by Newcastle's failure to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham and Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero, who instead joined Chelsea, Benitez tried to shame Ashley into action. "It depends on many other circumstances but we've tried to buy good defenders but also creative players and strikers to score more goals".

"I did it, and now I need to look forward and think about this season in the Premier League". "I'm confident he will". Clyne is set to miss the start of the season through injury, so Alexander-Arnold has another chance to make a mark.

"We have spent, of course, but all the teams have spent", he continued. "That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that".

But could cross-city rivals Manchester United mount a challenge after spending over £130m themselves? .

"I'm very, very happy".

Markets slide for third day on political tension
ECONOMY: Employers posted a record number of open jobs in June while a survey of small businesses showed optimism improving. Crude oil prices tumbled on the back of the selloff on Wall Street and lingering concerns over global oversupply.

"But it is going to finish, it is unsustainable".

"We know from working in preseason on the training pitch what our game plan is going to be in most games".

"There's a huge gulf between the Championship and the top Premier League teams and having watched City in pre-season, they look like they are in the mood for a good start. It will not be easy but we travel to win the game".

Excitement gleams in the faces of our players during their final push before Brighton! "Sead Kolasinac is also is in England now; I met him already in London", Sane said. It will be hard for them to stay up, especially the first time around.

Pep Guardiola will resist a tactical shift at Manchester City this season, having backed his raft of big-money singings to fit last season's often stuttering gameplan.

The Catalan has looked to rectify that by spending big in the summer transfer window, almost in the excess of £200million, and City have backed that spending up in pre-season winning their last three matches. I know that the manager is the same and that I will learn a lot from Guardiola and the other players.

They got the ball rolling with Bernardo Silva which was quickly followed by the signings of Ederson, Kyle Walker, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy, everyone bar Mendy are expected to make their professional debuts at the Amex Stadium and Guardiola stated that there is still "more transfers" to come with 20 days to go.

The main problem of the new football season is the absurdity of big-time football: the impossible sums of money, the reckless spending of it, salaries that make your nose bleed from sheer envy, the preposterous self-regard of so numerous players, the self-serving nonsense of the managers.
