Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hit back on the club critics over their signings.
There have been claims that City are beaking the Financial Fair Play rules but according to Guardiola, those against their moves should come up with tangible evidence for their claims.
“We have limits because of FFP. We are on the same page as everyone. After that, each club decides what they want to do. Every season we have passed the controls that are there for everyone. If we are wrong, prove it.
“I have said before, there are owners who want the benefits for themselves. Our owners don’t want to lose money but if they can spend, they will.
“In the past, (Manchester) United won a lot of titles because they spent more money than the other clubs. Do you remember that? They spent more than Manchester City because we couldn’t do it.
“Before it was one club, or two, or two and a half. Then other clubs arrived – Chelsea with Abramovich, us with Sheikh Mansour. They want to be in this world. What is the problem?,” Guardiola said ahead of their clash with Spurs.
The claims came after it emerged that City are preparing a record-breaking bid for Harry Kane after getting Jack Grealish for £100m from Aston Villa.
