We're buying three more players - Guardiola

Brighton have broken their club transfer record twice in one week to draft in Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven and Club Brugge's Jose Izquierdo, subject to medical and global clearance.

In the next three or four years Manchester City will buy one, two, maybe three players.

Hughton has insisted Brighton must ignore any gulf in financial clout however, citing Burnley and Bournemouth as examples of how to carve out a Premier League niche on a budget. But I think it is unsustainable. I like that. He is a humble guy - he's so intelligent, which is a huge quality.

"There are some transfers that have gone ahead so far that are so above our levels you nearly have to disregard them".

Jonathan is ESPN FC's Manchester City correspondent. "We are going to see at the end of the season what happens knowing how hard it is". I hope I can prove I'm just as good as them.

"We probably have to concentrate on the levels that we can affect".

City's football was, occasionally, dazzling and they were only outscored by champions Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, but finding an effective defensive configuration gave Guardiola a constant headache. It was a good test for us.

Defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo have all arrived at the Etihad Stadium along with goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva to take City's expenditure to £217 million ($281 million, 238 million euros).

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we have this season". I assure you that. However, the Brazilian blew hot and cold last season, and with Fernando joining Galatasaray, the Manchester City boss has a spot open in his squad. The three-man back line was also in fine form of late, conceding just one goal in last three matches, so the Citizens definitely look a good bet to defeat Brighton in their opening game.

Pep explained City's heavy investment, saying, "We had one of the oldest teams in the Premier League so we chose to put energy in the team for the next five, six years". This group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City.

Guardiola said the current spike in football transfer spending, which culminated in Neymar's recent world record move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros (£200 million, $260 million), had been building for some time.

"We did it earlier, so we were lucky because now it would be so much more expensive with what has happened in the last weeks".

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed".

With several new signings this transfer window, Stewart Robson tips Man City to win the Prem in Pep Guardiola's second season at the helm.

"It's the same pressure as I had last season", Guardiola explained.

The Brazil star was a crucial first team player and his departure has handed Barca the unenviable task of trying to replace him, and if Busquets were to leave too, that would be hugely detrimental to the team. "We are here to win the games and titles".
