Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has criticized Chelsea’s spending in the last year.
Chelsea have been very busy in the last transfer window as the new owners, led by Todd Bohely, took over. They have brought a lot of players for huge amounts of money, like Enzo Fernandez, Moises Caicedo, Mudyrk, Romeo Lavia, Raheem Sterling, Mark Cucurella, and many more.
This summer, they have overseen the departures of first-team players like Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Edouard Mendy, Ngolo Kante, and Kalidou Koulibaly.
Manchester City have just signed two players this season, and they are still active in the transfer window to look for De Bruyne’s replacement. The city faces punishment for breaching the FFP rules.
Speaking ahead of the game against Newcastle, Pep Guardiola said City can be punished if they spend like Chelsea. “They can do what they want,” he added. “I don’t criticise Chelsea for one second. I’m saying that if we do it, we are dead, all around the world. They can do whatever they want…”If they want to spend, I don’t know, £900m since Boehly arrived, 900 more, 900 more. They have it. The business is the business. They sell a lot this season, so they can do it.” He said.
