Man City keeper Ederson: Pep Guardiola said to forget price tag

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season", Guardiola said Friday on the eve of his side's opening game of the new Premier League season at promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.
Guardiola's reported desire to bring Alexis Sanchez to the Etihad Stadium and his previously reserved praise of Aguero means the Argentina star's future at City remains a matter of intrigue. But the two clubs, who have endured plenty of ups and downs since, are barely recognisable from those days.
"He's a goalscorer and that's why I worked hard to get him here". It's completely the same, because it's the same manager.
"We bought three and the market is so demanding right now, for all the teams around the world, not just for Manchester City". I expect him to really step up this season after a promising start in the last campaign. But if he wants me to play up front alone, it's his decision.
"So yes we'll look at as many good experiences as we can do, and that's for the whole of the season, not just the start. I believe he can do well in the Premier League", Clement said.
"It started with Real Madrid and Ronaldo going for £80 million and then Bale for £85 million and everything went more expensive".
Further forward, the signing of Bernardo Silva from Monaco will further sharpen City's attacking edge, while the ongoing pursuit of Alexis Sanchez points to Guardiola's determination to have pace, movement and goals throughout his forward line. "I would like to see Pep Guardiola stay even if City didn´t win a trophy, but the reality of football is that he would most likely be sacked if we have another season like the last one". But as the season gets underway, the Sportskeeda football team have their say on where the trophies on offer could end up come May 2018.
Having favoured a 3-4-3 system for much of pre-season, Guardiola confirmed he will alternate between three-man and four-man defences. "I want to have 100 more moments like that in my career", Lookman said.
Despite an injury-hit debut season with City following his January move from Palmeiras, Jesus still scored seven times and produced four assists in his 10 Premier League games.
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. His grandfather Harry was vice chairman in the 1970's and his uncle Ray a director. "£130 million worth of full backs in the first game", Brighton's home-grown winger Solly March says, smiling. "I am pleased with the business City have done in the transfer window so far".
But the stakes are high and there are no guarantees that City and Guardiola will succeed.
"Last season we were [favourites] too and we finished 15 points behind", he told a news conference. It's very rare a transaction doesn't go through eventually, as we saw with Neymar.
But they did. And a dozen years on, Bloom and his gang are here.
