“Nobody can match their financial power, no one,” Ferguson said in The Sunday Telegraph.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes the spending power of clubs like Manchester City has made the transfer market “insane”.
Backed by their wealthy owners, City have spent a fortune on players including Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Carlos Tevez in recent seasons.
“It’s been insane for a while, for a long time, and I think clubs like City create that.
Ferguson also admitted the £80million United received from Real Madrid for Cristiano Ronaldo was starting to look like bad business.
“Real Madrid spent £80 million on Ronaldo and the success he and the club has had justifies that,” he said in the Sunday Express.
“They would have probably paid £160 million if they knew they were going to get this.
“We had an agreement that he would be going after staying for another year. Never mind £80 million I’m saying to myself now that it should have been £800 million.”
Since Manchester city purchased Carlos Tevez for 25 million ponds “only”, why do Sir Alex Ferguson grumble?
Better to take a look in the mirror.
“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.
United sold Cristiano Ronaldo for 80 million pounds. That is one of the highest price set on the head of a human being ever.
Mammon is ruling inside Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson do not have to look to others for the source of the present insanity inside the religion of football.
