'I Can't Buy Six Players For £100m!' - Man United Boss Mourinho Slams City Spending Power

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has once again complained about Manchester City's spending by saying that his side can't buy six players for £600 million (N286 billion), believing that there is no financial fair play and that Manchester City have no spending limits.
"You think the club can put here now £600 million and let's buy six players of £100 million? The club cannot do that," he said in an interview with United's official website.
"I cannot expect the club to do that, so it's not critical and you can see how the market is, especially with the top teams. But, you know, without taking any credit away from Manchester City and Pep [Guardiola] and his staff and the players, they obviously have lots of credit in what they are doing. But Pep arrives, he has the goalkeeper of England [Joe Hart], he doesn't like him so he buys the goalkeeper of Barcelona [Claudio Bravo], he doesn't like him so he buys another one [Ederson]. Now he likes.

"He has [Pablo] Zabaleta and [Aleksandar] Kolarov - two very good players but more than 30 years old. He wants to replace, he doesn't replace with two, he replaces with three. One from Tottenham [Kyle Walker], one from Monaco [Benjamin Mendy] and one from Real Madrid [Danilo] as an example.
"Can we buy six or seven players at the same time? Can we invest £600-700 million? No. So, it's difficult. I think the last years, the market is going in such a direction or you belong to one of these clubs where there is no limit and you just buy what you want and there is no limit, there is no financial fair play, there is nothing, you do what you want - or it's hard."
United face Southampton on Saturday, while City take on Crystal Palace the day after.
