Pep Guardiola claims Premier League spending is 'unsustainable'

Guardiola Intelligent Bernardo Silva ready to make immediate Manchester City impact

Pep Guardiola has praised the speed of Manchester City's summer transfer activity. "We needed to do that because four or five players were out of contract".

I'm willing to admit that after Guardiola's ideal start previous year, I was one of I was one of the many City fans in September loudly declaring us champions... only for us to end up clinging onto the top four on the final day of the season.

"Last season at my first press conference we were favourites, so nothing has changed", he added.

Expectations were sky-high when Guardiola alighted in Manchester after years of being courted by City, but a title challenge failed to materialise and his side did not make a mark in any of the cup competitions.

"We spoke and I saw last season how tough is this league.The teams that arrive, in the first four, five, six games they are so complicated".

Matchedbets took average house prices and wages from each city and compared it with average player pay taken from each club.

"We spent, but all the teams spent".

As far as this game is concerned, Manchester City should win quite easily.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season", Guardiola said Friday on the eve of his side's opening game of the new Premier League season at promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.

"We did it earlier, so we were lucky because now would be more expensive after what happened in the last weeks".

'We know it's going to be a special day because it's the first Premier League game at the Amex, and the first Premier League game for the club.

"We bought three and the market is so demanding right now, for all the teams around the world, not just for Manchester City". "Sooner or later it's going to finish. We are going to see at the end of the season what happens, knowing how hard it is".

There should not be any shoehorning of players into unfamiliar roles this season after Guardiola signed three top-level full-backs - Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo - at a combined cost of around $161 million. That make a gap and made everything more expensive. This summer we had to do that because we had one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League. It would appear as though Pep Guardiola will use a 3-5-2 formation in the new campaign, which could see Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero start up front, and with players like Yaya Toure, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne creating chances, we could see Man City score goals for fun this term.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany believes the team is comfortable with the switch to three at the back as they have quality players who are very adaptable, the centre back said.
