In the wake of breaking their record to secure the service of Atletico Bilbao‘s defender Aymeric Laporte, Manchester City have spent an astounding £225million on defenders alone. Or on the other hand what is the same, the Etihad outfit has outspent 52 Countries budget of defence.

Only few clubs spent £300-£400m on two players. We spend it on six players,” Guardiola defended the enormous money splashed on defenders at a press ocnference for Aymeric Laporte’s unveiling.

The £57million paid for the Athletic Bilbao star expedites City’s total spending on their defence line to £225million. As detailed by ‘inews.co.uk’, that is more than what 52 countries committed to their yearly defence spending plan in 2016.

The signings of Benjamin Mendy for £52m, Kyle Walker for £54m, Danilo for £27m and goalkeeper Ederson for £35m, added to the £57m paid for Aymeric Laporte, put the Cityzens ahead of 52 countries as far as spending in defence.
