Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne believes the Premier League club’s spending spree is just what they required.
Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Kyle Walker, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy happen to be added to Pep Guardiola’s squad, with City getting spent far more than a reported £200million.
City are desperate for improvement on last season after failing to win a trophy, finishing third within the Premier League and generating a last-16 Champions League exit.
De Bruyne feels City required to strengthen within the close-season, especially following numerous departures – such as the likes of Pablo Zabaleta, Aleksandar Kolarov and Gael Clichy.
“It’s how the marketplace goes. There’s a lot of cash [going out], but there is plenty of dollars going in,” the Belgian stated, via the Manchester Evening News.
“Who can say that spending £200m is typical? It isn’t. But how the league and football is going in the moment, it’s regular prices.
“Obviously it is lots of money, but it really is points that we needed to perform. The revenue that the club gets in will likely be a lot more than the £200m.”
Soon after a 2-0 derby loss to Manchester United at the International Champions Cup, City crushed True Madrid 4-1 on Wednesday.
De Bruyne, who starred by obtaining a hand in three goals against Madrid, stated it was a good sign for Guardiola’s males.
“I think we’re on the proper way. Certainly this game doesn’t say a lot, however it says that we’re moving in the appropriate path,” he said.
“Hopefully we are able to possess a superior efficiency against Tottenham [on Saturday] then we will function difficult in Manchester to be ready for August 12 [Premier League opener against Brighton and Hove Albion].”
