Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola has mocked Manchester United, saying that the Old Trafford club cannot afford to sign his players, despite the club spending a significant sum in this summer’s transfer market in an attempt to rejuvenate their squad, as reported by the Daily Express.
The Bavarian club face Man Utd’s city rivals Manchester City in the Champions League this week, but despite this, Guardiola was keen to take a pot shot at Louis van Gaal’s new side.
Guardiola is regarded as one of the best managers in the world, having taken Barcelona to new heights in his time with the Catalan club. His first season with Bayern saw them win the Bundesliga in March, before beating Borussia Dortmund in the German cup.
There is, however, an expectation that Bayern need to match up to the achievements of Jupp Heynckes this season, who led the club to a treble, also winning the Champions League, in his last season with the club.
Guardiola said: “[Manchester United] don’t have enough money, I saw they spent this kind of money.
