Manchester City obviously being well known for their rich owners, have never had a problem when it comes to splashing the cash in the transfer market.
This obviously helping towards winning, when you can sign multiple players at high prices: Aymeric Laporte £57m, Benjamin Mendy £52m, Riyad Mahrez £60m, Joao Cancelo £60m, Rodri £62.8m, just to name a few in the last three seasons.
Liverpool on the other-hand have relied on the sales of ex-players, in order to off-balance much of their spending:
Players In – Virgil van Dijk £75m, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain £35m, Fabinho £39.9m, Naby Keita £52.75m, Alisson £66,8m.
Players Out – Philippe Countinho £142m, Mamadou Sakho £26m, Dominic Solanke £17m, Danny Ings £20m.
Regardless of either Guardiola or Klopp’s techniques to success in the transfer market, both managers have consistently strengthened their squads with players that have developed and played well for the team. Unlike many of the clubs currently chasing them.
