Barcelona blast Guardiola's Man City, explain Neymar fiasco



Pep Guardiola's Manchester City has come under attack from Barcelona following a record-breaking summer transfer window.


Barcelona director Albert Soler has taken a swipe at Premier League clubs, especially Manchester City, who is coached by their former captain and manager, Pep Guardiola.


The Spanish club has had a terrible summer, in which they lost Neymar to PSG and failed to sign primary target, Philippe Coutinho.


City spent big this summer, including spending a record fee for a goalkeeper to get Ederson from Benfica, a transfer alluded to by Soler in the context of financial fair play restrictions.


And Soler has taken the time to blast both Manchester City and Liverpool, following their summer transfer debacle.


He said: “If Robert [Fernandez, fellow director] and I sat here and announced we signed 2 players for €270m, we'd have crossed the line and we'd have to resign.


“It's reached the stage where one club paid 50 million for a goalkeeper. We're relieved that UEFA are opening investigations. We're not going to enter into a market which is has gone way out of control.'


Meanwhile, the embattled Barcelona chief also explained why it was difficult for them to sign a replacement for Neymar, despite signing Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund.


"I have a message that tells me PSG wanted Neymar on July 19. Luckily, WhatsApps have dates. The interest was not in January or March, but on July 19.


“The rumours started at the end of July. Both the President and I didn't know he'd leave prior to that.”
