The Sky Blues are top of the Premier League, are into the Carabao Cup finals, and have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Pep Guardiola jokingly said that financial strength is the key to Manchester City’s recent success, admitting that the club has a “lot of money to buy a lot of incredible players.”

Manchester City sealed a comfortable 2-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The win in Budapest saw City extend their winning run across all competitions to 19 matches and their unbeaten streak to 26 games.

Manchester City have invested close to a staggering £2 billion in squad reinforcement ever over the past 20 years.

In defense alone the Sky Blues have forked out around £400 million in recent years, signing Kyle Walker, Aymeric Laporte, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, Nathan Ake, and Benjamin Mendy.

Ever since his appointment in 2016, Guardiola has spent about £700 million to bring in the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva, and Riyad Mahrez.

Asked to reveal the secret behind his side’s formidable form, Guardiola responded, as per Sky Sports: “We have a lot of money to buy a lot of incredible players.

“It is true. Without good quality players, we cannot do it. The humanity of this group… the players are fantastic and have an incredible relationship. They play every game to think just win that game.”
