Guardiola cannot rule out that Man City spent £100 million per player in the next transfer window, with the Citizens tied to Haaland and Lukaku.
Competitions are won by more than one player
Another proven No.9 is expected to figure prominently on City’s wishlist, with club-record goalscorer Aguero stepping down as a free agent this summer when his current contract expires. Pep was reluctant to discuss individual goals, but admits a lot of money that can be invested in the right player.
Inquired if a nine-figure deal could be struck, Pep Guardiola told reporters ahead of the Champions League’s quarter final clash with Borussia Dortmund. Posting a lot of money on a single player doesn’t offer a winning edge, he said.
According to him, football is a team game, everyone contributes. Competitions are won not by one player, it is every player. Until Manchester City decided not to spend nearly £100 million on a player. Maybe in the future this will happen when the club decides that they need to improve the team for the next five to ten years, but so far the organization decides not to do this, and therefore they did not do it.
City will hunt in summer
City remains on the hunt for the historic quads this season, with the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Champions League crowns crowned for grabs. Additions in several positions have been spoken of, from left-back to defenders, but a different hitter is set to the top of any wish-list.
City is said to be part of an ever-growing roster of fans following Erling’s exploits in Dortmund as the 20-year-old Norwegian becomes one of the most sought-after assets in world football. The familiar Belgian face international Romelu also reportedly caught the eye of Pep Guardiola’s when the former Manchester United striker has hit 60 goals in 86 games since leaving Old Trafford for the Serie A giants Inter.
