Manchester City’s Head Coach, Pep Guardiola, has recently mocked Chelsea’s spending prowess in the transfer market.
The Blues, who were taken over by Todd Boehly and Clearlake consortium last summer, have left many questioning Financial Fair Play laws as they have splurged out on multiple signings during the January transfer window.
Guardiola contends that the Premier League defending champions have managed to win 11 titles in the last five years despite being among the top 5 or 6 teams in terms of net spend.
He has also questioned whether Chelsea is being fuelled by a state-backed approach.
Questions about excessive spending for otherwise moderate players – such as Mykhailo Mudryk (88 million euros) and Enzo Fernandez (120 million euros) — have been raised with Arsenal being sidelined from offers due to higher wages offered by Chelsea.
