Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola rules out spending spree

Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus celebrates scoring a stoppage-time winner against Southampton

City's spending has helped Guardiola transform an ageing squad into record-breaking title-winners and the former Barcelona manager intends on bolstering his squad this summer.

Amazon Prime Video has revealed the first trailer from their upcoming behind the scenes documentary series with Manchester City.

32 - No English team has won more games in a top-flight season than City this term.

Guardiola's men are the first team to reach that landmark and also tore up a succession of other competition records on the way to a third Premier League crown in seven seasons.

Before this season, the record number of wins for a single Premier League campaign was 30 - a mark set by Antonio Conte's Chelsea a year ago. But Jurgen Klopp's men know even if they fall short in Kiev, they will be back in the Champions League next season as they blew Brighton away.

Belgian midfielder Kevin de Bruyne, arguably City's star player of the campaign, was taken aback by the enthusiasm of the thousands of flag-waving fans.

City had already begun permitting filming in the Etihad dressing room, despite it being a restricted area for the PL's domestic rights-holders Sky Sports and BT Sport, who between them paid £5.1billion for their contracts.

"This season has been unbelievable and to finish it off yesterday in the last second to get the 100 points is unbelievable".

"But if Jose was to win the league next year you could actually argue Jose has done the better job".

Winning four back to back manager of the month awards, holding nearly all the positive Premier League records and having all top four assist kings for the season in his squad just shows the free-flowing attacking display we have witnessed for the last ten months. The best players still go to Spain, and English football can live with the idea that the technical standard there is higher, but the Premier League's appeal is self-consciously based on the notion that it is the most competitive league.

Manchester City tried to sign Mahrez in the January transfer window, but were unwilling to match the kind of money Leicester demand for the Algerian despite the player putting in a transfer request.

"When you win for 100 points it´s something special for the club", said City manager Pep Guardiola. I am curious how we are going to run without the bull.

Salah is the first person to be named the Premier League's player of the month three times in one season, scooping the prize in November, February and March.
