Manchester City won the Premier League and FA Cup in the 2022/23 season, and the long-awaited UEFA Champions League, gaining the status of a global big club beyond Europe.

Since UAE royalty Sheikh Mansour took over the club in 2009, it has won seven Premier League titles and earned England’s Big Six status. Following this, Manchester City emerged as European champions.

Man City is going on a Korean tour after 50 years since the confrontation with the then Korean national soccer team B team in 1976.

Guardiola recently let go of treble star Riyad Mahrez.

Mahrez left Man City on the 28th and transferred to Saudi Pro League Al Ahli. He paid a transfer fee of 35 million euros (approximately 49.2 billion won) to Manchester City.

Guardiola has expressed some regrets about Mahrez’s departure. “Marez has left Manchester. I was happy to work with him as manager. I feel special about him and we have a good relationship,” he said.

“Marez is a player with great technique and was a good player off the pitch. He is a good player that is hard to replace. He wanted to play every time and it must have been hard to play until the Champions League final at the end.”

“The transfer market is still open and many players are being discussed,” Guardiola said, leaving the possibility of a replacement open. “I foresaw.

In addition to this, Guardiola said that the expansion of the Saudi league should pay attention to Mahrez’s departure. “Today the Saudi league is completely changing the market. Cristiano Ronaldo first went there a few months ago. They are buying stars for a lot of money. More to come in the future,” he predicted.

Furthermore, he evaluated the transfer of Mahrez, saying, “Every club is watching what will happen. Mahrez also received a huge offer and it was hard to refuse.”

Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund (PIF), which is said to hold about 790 trillion won, is receiving a large amount of money as it acquired Al Ahli, Al Nasr, Al Ittihad, and Al Hilal in the Saudi professional league last June, and Karim Benzema and N’Golo Transfers of stars such as Kante (above Al Ittihad), Kalidou Koulibaly, and Ruben Neves (above Al Hilal) are continuing.

When asked if the Saudi professional league was a threat to transfers, Guardiola said, “No. It’s not a threat. It’s a reality. It’s something the league can do.”

However, Guardiola said that the power of the Premier League is also excellent and it depends on the players’ choices. “But the Premier League has also organized itself well. It is better than the other leagues in that respect. The Premier League clubs know their players well. Whatever the Saudi league does, if the players want to experience it,” he said. I will go there,” he said.
