The Reds have only signed Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig in a deal reportedly worth £36million, while  City have already broken their transfer record to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.

Liverpool are unlikely to make another big signing before the transfer window closes, as Klopp claimed have limits unlike the Citizens but Guardiola says the Reds can go to court and make a statement if they are not happy.

"Some owners want to benefit, our owners don’t want any benefits. So they don’t invest in the team, while we invest what we can," Guardiola said, as per Goal.

"Before there were only one or two clubs. Now there is Chelsea with [Roman] Abramovich and our club with Sheikh Mansour. They want to be buying into football. What is the problem? We have limits for Financial Fair Play and if they don’t agree [with City’s spending] they can go to court and make a statement.

"We bought Jack Grealish because we sold [players] for £60m so, in the end, we have spent £40m. We follow absolutely the rules. At our club, the owners don’t want to lose money of course but they want to spend, so we can do it.

"Years ago, when Manchester United won a lot of titles, it was because they spent more money than other clubs. Do you remember that? At that moment Man City couldn’t do it because we did not have the owners we have now."
