Guardiola forecasts end to City spending spree
12 August 2017, 11:10 | Andy Ferguson
Pep Guardiola is keen to make further additions to his Manchester City squad before the end of the transfer window. Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season. "We needed to do that because four or five players were out of contract".
The Seagulls host Manchester City in their first top-flight match for 34 years this afternoon and Hughton is urging his players to be ready for the tough challenge that lies ahead.
"I have a feeling that we will score early and get a good win against Brighton on Saturday". We bought three and the market is so demanding for all the teams, not just City. We played 3-4-3 with a diamond, it's such a demanding system, so attacking, but so demanding defensively, and we did it quite well, yet for me it doesn't matter as it's pre-season.
"In the next few years City will buy one, two, maybe three players".
March believes that the high transfer fees are a reflection of the quality in the league but says Brighton are not intimidated by bigger teams or anxious by the general consensus that they will be relegated after just one season.
Guardiola struck a satisfied tone when discussing his raft of fresh full-backs and their ability to have a transformative effect on City's play this season.
After spending millions in the window, will the likes of Man United and Man City display nearly ideal football, or will they fail to meet their silverware aspirations this season? If the club decides he is not able, we are going to take a solution.
Their summer signings have improved the team and I don't think Pep Guardiola has stopped spending yet. Now with Neymar. But it is going to finish.
