Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted he fears the impact of his side's proposed Champions League ban will affect his summer transfer plans.
City signed 13 players in the summer of 2016 with the likes of Leroy Sane, Ilkay Gundogan, Claudio Bravo and Jone Stones among players who joined as Guardiola took over. Due to alleged Financial Fair Play rule breaches, City have been suspended from the Champions League as well as the spiraling costs for players will hinder his summer transfer plans.
"I don't think so. I don't think so because today it is so difficult to change the players because they are so expensive and it is not easy," he said when asked whether he expects this summer transfer to be busy.
"The club must [also] be sustainable, I understand completely and in the situation that we are in we have to wait [not] anticipate. Our idea right now with the situation with Financial Fair Play [is] when we are going to appeal."
"Right now we have to wait. So we are going to play these three months and when the season finishes we will see what the situation is. And with the club, together, we are going to decide what is best - not just for the next year, but for the next two, three, four years for the cub."
