Probably tied to their FFP situation. Relatively cheap players that they might be able to turn a profit on could well be all they'll be buying for a few years.
This. Ignoring all of citys previous misdemeanours of dodgy accounts, the reason they are finicially above FFP at this moment is because they:

1) dont over pay like chelsea do an walk away from stupid deals.

2) they have a great academy where they have mopped up alot of up and coming talent that they sell on for big profits, eg sancho, lavia, diaz, palmer etc. they have made over £250million in sales over the past 6/7 years. This is the model we are obviously looking to emulate. Buy loads of kids really cheaply and hope they either make the grade for us, or become decent premiership players elsewhere and make us decent profit. Chelsea up until now used to do that but would loan loads of them out, city cant be bothered with that nonsense and are more ruthless.

I thought their fans would be furious at Neville's "blue billion pound bottlejobs" line but they're mostly just sadly agreeing.

Only someone Spurs through and through would say this. 😏
