Pep Guardiola has once again opened the money pouch with the transfer of Ruben Dias to patch up Manchester City’s hesitant defense. In total, the Spaniard has already invested nearly 550 million euros on his defense, a staggering amount.
Last weekend’s 2-5 defeat to Leicester City painfully exposed the pain points of the Manchester City defense once again. Coach Josep Guardiola did not give up and immediately put 68 million euros on the table for Benfica defender Ruben Dias.
The Portuguese is the umpteenth million-dollar transfer in the City defense. Since his appointment as coach of Manchester City in 2016, Guardiola has already spent 548 million euros on goalkeepers and defenders, according to transfermarkt.nl.
The total amount of all transfers from Manchester City under Guardiola is more than 932 million euros in 4 years.
