"Of course, for the next three, four years, Manchester City is going to buy one, two players (each window)".
A player with an exquisite first touch and eye for a pass, many feel he is tailor-made to excel under Guardiola's guidance, and City's open, attacking brand of football was a major reason he decided to make the move to the Etihad. "The current players are young and will stay for the future".
March believes that the high transfer fees are a reflection of the quality in the league but says Brighton are not intimidated by bigger teams or anxious by the general consensus that they will be relegated after just one season.
"I am happy to be part of this group", he said.
Ederson Moraes insists he's unperturbed by his status as the most expensive goalkeeper in history following his move to Manchester City earlier this summer.

"My family and I were fortunate enough to travel across seven states, driving over 2,000 miles, following Manchester City on tour (in America) this summer and we had the most fantastic time.

We played 3-4-3 with a diamond, it's such a demanding system, so attacking, but so demanding defensively, and we did it quite well, yet for me it doesn't matter as it's pre-season. We will change one important player, it depends on who we are going to stay.
Both Mendy and Walker are very attacking full backs, which should suit the Guardiola system well this season, as both Mendy and Walker had 5 assists in their respected leagues last season. "The big fail now takes one week in football!" "We are here to win the games and titles".

"So yes we'll look at as many good experiences as we can do, and that's for the whole of the season, not just the start".
"I don't [think] there's extra pressure on me", he said. "People say in my first press conference we are favourites". Both ends of the table are sure to be competitive with money being spent like it's going out of fashion, and that should make it harder to predict than ever. We have to deal with that and handle that.
