The amount of money taken to assemble Manchester City’s current squad

Manchester City


Manchester City have a collection of world-class players. Their squad includes the likes of Jack Grealish, Erling Haaland, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and many more. Pep Guardiola’s side try to strike a bargain whenever they can, however, they also have a few academy graduates that barely cost anything. Man City have a side bursting with star players, capable of winning silverware season after season. Moreover, this super squad put together by Guardiola led the club to a historic treble last season. However, Manchester City have been charged for breaking 115 Financial Fair Play rules set by the Premier League. FFP was designed so that clubs do not overspend. These rules ensure that the club can only spend what they earn. Additionally, it prevents clubs from facing debt. The FFP charges have been lingering over City for a long time and the club are eager for a ruling to be reached.

How much did Manchester City pay for each player in their first squad?

Starting from their first-choice goalkeeper Ederson, the club got him for a fee of £35 million from Benfica in 2017. Man City spent £50 million to bring in captain Kyle Walker from Tottenham. Additionally, they got John Stones from Everton for the same amount as the captain. One of their cheapest bargains was getting Manuel Akanji for £15 million from Borussia Dortmund. Moreover, the club got Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish, and Bernardo Silva for high rates, however, they have been significant and worth it for Guardiola’s side. Phil Foden was a gift to Man City as he was with the club since four years of age and he didn’t cost the club a penny. Additionally, Julian Alvarez cost the club only £14 million in 2022. However, the total cost the club spent on their prolific forward, Erling Haaland is expected to be £85.5 million according to reports.
